What Is The Function Of The Umbilical Cord


  • 11 Mar, 2012

    The umbilical cord is a set of blood vessels that connect the fetus with the placenta. In the fetus, one extremity of the cord inserts into the center of the abdominal wall (the later scar of this insertion is the umbilicus).The function of the umbilical cord is to allow the transport of substances, nutrients, gases, and residuals, between the fetus and the mother?s body.
