You’re Carrying More Than One Miracle.

Did You Know You Can Donate Your Placenta?

If you have a planned cesarean section, placenta donation is an opportunity for you to help others. The process is simple, easy, and free, without any risks to mother or baby.

The Opportunity to Make a Difference

The amniotic membrane of the placenta is an extraordinary tissue. One donated placenta has the potential to help treat as many as 100 patients. Processed amniotic membrane from a donated placenta may be used to treat wounds and soft tissue injuries that are otherwise unresponsive to treatment, such as diabetic foot ulcers, venous leg ulcers, pressure ulcers and burns. It can also be used by physicians as a protective barrier during numerous surgical procedures.

Placentas are usually discarded after the birth, but if you choose to donate, your placenta may be used to:

Treat patients with difficult-to-heal wounds

Provide an advanced natural treatment option for physicians

Make a difference to someone’s quality of life!

The smallest gift. The biggest difference.

Donating Placenta is Easy, Free, and Safe.

If you are scheduled for a Caesarean section and your physician is a participating member of our placenta donation program, consider sharing your miracle to help those in need. The process is simple:

1

Talk to your physician about donation.

2

Give your consent to donate.

3

Answer basic medical and social history questions.

4

Placenta is collected after your baby is born.
