Why Donate?

Understanding the Gift of Placenta Donation 

What is the Gift of Donation?

After your baby is delivered, you may want to donate the birth tissue to give the gift of healing to those in need. We partner with OBGYNs and hospitals across the nation to provide the opportunity to contribute to the creation of medical products for wound healing and surgical repair. Birth tissue from just one birth can be used to heal up to 50 patients who suffer from burns, diabetic ulcers, eye injuries or other wounds and injuries.

The Power of a Mother’s Birth Tissue

The birth tissues serve to create and protect your new baby, but the power of those tissues doesn’t end after you deliver. Unfortunately, these tissues are commonly discarded as 'medical waste' after the birth of your baby. Through your gift of donation, you have the opportunity to make a real difference. By simply consenting to allow these tissues to be collected by telaGen, you can extend the healing effects of your placenta, and contribute to improving the lives of many others.

What Happens When I Say 'Yes' to the Gift of Donation?

You will enjoy the simple, easy and free process of donating your birth tissue after delivery. Your OBGYN will provide you with a consent form and brief medical questionnaire. Other than that, nothing else is required of you, and the process will not affect you, your delivery process, or your baby in any way.

What if I Choose Not to Donate my Placenta and Birth Tissues?

If you choose not to participate, your birth tissues will be discarded as medical waste.
