In brief: Many

It's primary function is to act as a go between with your system and the baby's.
It can filter out bad stuff and let good stuff (nutrients) in. It allows for the proper transfer of everything from calories to antibodies to the baby. A healthy and normally functioning placenta is critical to the baby's health.
