Birth Tissue Donation
Moms who give birth via cesarean section have the option to donate their Birth Tissue to ConnectLife.
By donating your placenta and umbilical cord, you give the Gift of Healing. The innermost layer of the placenta (known as the amnion) is made up of special cells that stimulate the body's healing mechanism. The amnion can be used to promote healing after surgery and is also used in combination with skin grafts for burn victims.
With each birth tissue donated, 12 to 100 different transplantable grafts can be produced. This means that up to 100 different people can be on the road to recovery with just one placenta.
