In brief: Pearl and oyster.
Foetus is the british spelling for the embryo/fetus (i.
e. The baby in utero). Uterus or womb is the female muscular reproductive organ that houses the pregnancy.

In brief: Names
Uterus is the same organ as 'womb, ' baby girls are born with them and women use them (if they choose) to carry children.
'foetus' is a british english spelling of 'fetus' which means a pregnancy, the baby in the 'womb.'.
