Mothers and their healthcare providers are not given incentives to donate.
Donations are only accepted from healthy mothers and babies.
Birth tissue donations come from full-term deliveries, not abortions.
All birth tissues are tested to meet the highest standards.
Obtained when mothers are not under the influence of anesthesia, drugs or in active labor.
Unique donor ID number is traced through the entire process of enrollment, health information and collection.
We clearly communicate and explain to mothers how their donation could be used.
Birth tissues will only be sent to reputable biorepositories, research laboratories and manufacturers.
