For the alien race in Stephen R. Donaldson's The Gap Cycle, see Amnion (Gap Cycle).

The amnion is a membrane that closely covers the embryo when first formed. It fills with the amniotic fluid which causes the amnion to expand and become the amniotic sac which serves to provide a protective environment for the developing embryo or fetus. The amnion, along with the chorion, the yolk sac and the allantois form a protective sac around the embryo. In birds, reptiles and some mammals, the protective sac is enclosed in a shell or a uterus in most mammals.

The term amnion is from Ancient Greek ἀμνίον 'little lamb', diminutive of ἀμνός 'lamb'. it is cognate with the English verb 'yean', bring forth young (usually lambs).

It is a feature of the amniotes, or amniota, which includes the vertebrate groups reptiles, birds, and mammals. Amphibians and fish are excluded from the amniota. The amnion stems from the extra-embryonic somatic mesoderm on the outer side and the extra=embryonic ectoderm on the inner side.[1]
