The umbilical cord is the cord that connects the fetus to the maternal placenta, providing nutrients and removing wastes. The umbilical cord is a cord like structure about 22 in. (56 cm) long in a pregnant woman, extending from the abdominal wall of the fetus to the placenta.

The main function of the umbilical cord is to carry nourishment and oxygen from the placenta to the fetus and return waste products to the placenta from the fetus. The umbilical cord achieves this function by consisting of an extension of the membrane covering the fetus that encloses a mucoid jelly through which one vein carries oxygenated blood and two arteries carry un-oxygenated blood.
