WHO CAN DONATE

Any healthy, expectant mother who has a planned C-section delivery is eligible to donate.

Some medical conditions may disqualify a donor, for example, active cancer and/or infectious diseases.

There are no age limitations for donors.

DONATING IS EASY

The donation process is easy and safe, poses no risk to you or your baby, and can help improve many lives. Here’s how it works:

If you’re having a planned C-section, you are eligible to donate.

Let your physician know you are interested in donating and your physician will contact BTI.

Usually on the day of your planned C-section, a BTI staff member will have you sign a formal consent form, as well as a questionnaire regarding your medical and personal history. This information will not be shared and is only used to ensure safety standards are met.

A blood sample will be drawn to ensure you are healthy and do not have any infectious diseases.

After delivering your miracle, a BTI staff member will work with your delivery team to recover your afterbirth.
