Your single donation has the potential to help recipients improve their quality of life. The healing capacity of products derived from birth tissue have been shown to benefit wound healing for conditions that may otherwise result in amputation, corneal blindness or debilitating pain.Unless you request otherwise, your placenta will be disposed of. Donation of your placenta will not interfere with the delivery process and your baby will not be affected in any way.
