    Birth Tissue Enhances and Heals Lives

    Continue Reading to Learn How to Donate Birth Tissue

    Expectant mothers can choose to donate birth tissue following the delivery of their healthy newborn(s) in a Nevada-licensed freestanding birthing center or hospital. Birth tissue, which includes amniotic membrane and fluid; placenta; umbilical cord tissue and umbilical veins; chorionic membrane; cord blood and connective tissue contained in the umbilical cord called “Wharton’s Jelly”; or any other tissue derived from a live birth provides nutrients and protection to support fetal development in the womb and is normally discarded after birth. These birth tissues, made up of proteins, growth factors, cytokines, and extracellular matrix molecules have been found to stimulate cell regeneration, reduce inflammation, and expedite recovery times when used in regenerative therapy as tissue grafts. Donated birth tissues have been used for many years in various medical procedures and therapies, including (but not limited to) wound healing, ophthalmic procedures, skin grafting, spinal surgeries, and sports injuries. Birth tissue donation is safe for mothers and babies, and there is no cost to the mother for giving this gift of healing. The donation and utilization of birth tissue is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and standards for the donation of birth tissue are provided by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB).

    Below is a list of entities accredited by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) for the acquisition or collection of birth tissue that you may contact to obtain further information on how to donate your birth tissue:
