Many expectant mothers are aware of the value of their baby’s birth tissue during their baby’s gestational journey in the womb. The placenta is an organ that develops in the uterus during pregnancy. This structure provides oxygen and nutrients, and removes waste products from the baby’s blood, via the umbilical cord. For this reason, the umbilical cord is often referred to as the supply line. It begins to form five weeks after conception.
Through medical science, we know that your baby’s birth tissue is just as valuable after delivery, in a unique way. It has the potential to create a significant impact in the world of research, treatment development, healing, and aiding in medical advancements.
Hospitals consider birth tissue to be biohazard medical waste and routinely discard it as such. Many new moms are not educated on the option they have to donate their baby’s birth tissue and make a powerful difference for good in the lives of those who are suffering from various health ailments. At CellSure, we consider it a privilege to offer women the opportunity and empowerment to give a priceless gift of hope, in addition to the miracle of their baby’s birth.
Your birth tissue is rich in stem cells, which can turn into any cell needed by the body. Although birth tissues can offer healing to patients who have a variety of medical needs, it is most often used to heal traumatic wounds. Grafts made from birth tissue are primarily used as a covering to protect difficult-to-heal openings in the skin, such as burns and diabetic ulcers. These tissue grafts act as a natural covering and are flexible, allowing it to shape itself to the wound site providing a protective and physical barrier when applied to wounds.
