The Gift of Amnion

Since the early 20th century, amnion, the fluid protecting and nourishing your baby in the womb, has been used in various surgical procedures. Today, it is used to treat burn victims, difficult to heal wounds and soft tissue injuries, as well as used as a natural healing barrier in surgery.

Sadly, amnion and afterbirth is simply thrown away as medical waste after a baby is born. However, you can make a difference and choose to donate it after your precious miracle is born.

Donating Your Afterbirth

Ask your physician about donating your afterbirth. A single donation could help heal hundreds and allow people to live better lives. If your physician is not a current member of our birth tissue donation program and you would like to donate or you have questions, please contact us for further information.
