AMNION | A POWERFUL GIFT
Donating Your Amnion
Right now, you’re growing a miracle. And right now, your miracle is surrounded by a powerful and protective barrier called amnion, an amazing and natural resource that can save lives, help heal severe wounds, treat burn victims and improve the quality of life for so many.
After your baby is born, he no longer needs it, and sadly, this powerful resource is simply discarded as waste.
By donating your birth tissue, commonly called afterbirth, you can make a difference. Ask your doctor how you can help share your miracle, and in turn, share a powerful gift that will make lives, better.
If your doctor is not a current member of BTi and you would like to donate your birth tissue, or have questions, please contact us, today.
Why Your Donation Matters
Amnion and birth tissue has been used in surgeries and wound care since the early 20th century. Your amniotic tissue donation helps patients heal faster and live better lives. Below are a few areas in medicine where amnion and birth tissue are used.
Amnion is used in eye surgeries and helps heal damaged ocular tissue. Physicians also use amniotic tissue to help heal corneal ulcerations and chemical burns.
Amniotic tissue is used by dentists to treat gum disease. It can help grow new cells and tissue, creating healthier gums for the patient. It also eliminates the need for having to harvest tissue from the patient’s own mouth, which can be a painful process.
Diabetic wounds, pressure wounds and severe burns that won’t heal can be treated with amnion and amniotic tissue. It can reduce inflammation and helps the wound site close more rapidly. Why? Because amnion contains growth factors and proteins that can help the patient heal and regenerate damaged tissue.
More and More Expectant Mothers are Choosing to Donate
According to the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB), the total number of living tissue donors increased from fewer than 600 in 2007, to more than 19,000 in 2015.
From 2012 to 2015, the number of living tissue donors increased by 122% and now make up more than 13% of total tissue donors.
430,662 birth tissue grafts were distributed from AATB accredited institutions in 2015.
