Biological properties in the placenta and umbilical cord help to promote regenerative healing. Grafts made from your birth tissue can help reduce inflammation and scarring while promoting a healing environment. These grafts can be used to facilitate the healing of patients with a wide range of conditions, including keratitis, corneal scars, glaucoma, diabetic foot ulcers, osteoarthritis, and chronic and non-healing wounds, to name a few.
Birth tissue donation is one of the easiest ways to make a significant impact on the lives of others. One donated placenta and umbilical cord can help up to 75 people. Think about the legacy a mother can create for her newborn. Coming into the world your baby can provide a second chance at life for those in need.
How to Donate?
Once you make the decision to donate, a Sharing Miracles team member will walk you through the process and coordinate the donation with your doctor and hospital performing your C-section.
The collection of your placenta and umbilical cord takes place after your baby is born. It will not affect your newborn’s delivery or the care you receive. There is no cost to you for any part of the donation process. There are no additional medications or medical procedures required.
