The amniotic sac. AKA “the bag of waters” or “membranes”.
This is a tough but thin transparent pair of membranes, which hold a developing embryo (and later a fetus) until shortly before birth.
In some cases, babies will be born in the amniotic sac - a caul birth. This is far less common but more likely to occur when labour is left to unfold without interference.
The sac is made up of two membranes called the amnion (inner) and the chorion (outer). These membranes look like one, but you can tease them apart after birth when inspecting the placenta.

Birth tissue provides a protective and physical barrier when applied to wounds and is now being collected for medical purposes. Birth tissue has further been instrumental in providing future benefits by advancing medical research and finding new treatments for medical conditions. Tissue grafts derived from your birth tissue are used primarily as a covering to treat wounds such as diabetic foot ulcers and burn injuries. This natural covering helps native tissue restoration and remodelling. ⠀
