Your generous donation of your placenta and your umbilical cord blood after your infant is born, will help others live a healthier life...
WHY DONATE YOUR PLACENTA AND UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD?

Everyday thousands of children and adults are recipients of cellular therapeutic products that help them survive certain cancers, traumatic events such as burns and a multitude of illness such as diabetes and other autoimmune diseases.  These cellular products are derived from umbilical cord blood, the umbilical cord and the placenta.
The placenta contains a multitude biological components that have the potential to help heal certain disease processes such as cancer, genetic diseases and even infectious diseases such as Covid 19.  In the United States, much research is underway, identifying areas where placental stem cells and other cellular and tissue components are being studied for possible treatments in the future.
After your baby is safely delivered and your infant is handed over to the newborn medical staff for immediate drying, warming and infant evaluation.  The second phase of your delivery begins.  
 
During the second phase of your delivery, the separation of the placenta and umbilical cord (after birth) from the uterus begins.  This process usually takes minutes and once the placenta (after birth) is completely removed, your doctor will examine it for any unusual appearance and will typically be placed in a surgical bin and get discarded as medical waste. 
 
Instead of having your placenta and cord blood discarded as biological waste, you NOW have the option to donate it, knowing that someday, your generous gift will help a child or adult struggling with a serious illness or condition feel better and begin their healing process.
DONATING YOUR PLACENTA IS:
  • Supported and coordinated with your obstetrician and delivery room personnel at your hospital 
  • Safe and pain-free for both you and your baby
  • Free of charge 
  • Confidential and Private
  • Does not interfere with your delivery process in anyway
