Your Donation Can Make A Difference
While many mothers grasp the gift they hold when their children are born, few understand the treasure that remains in the placenta, umbilical cord, cord blood and amniotic fluid. These tissue products once protected and nourished the baby in the womb. Now they can provide healing and health to many who are suffering.
At TriForLife Birth Tissue Recovery Group, we not only collect these miraculous products from mothers who donate them, but we also strive to educate people about the astounding benefits of birth tissue. When they realize the benefits they can provide for others, many mothers happily donate their birth tissue.
Once a baby is born, he or she no longer needs the placenta and other tissues. In fact, in most cases, the birthing room staff discards these items as medical waste. When mothers agree to donate them, birth tissue can offer relief in hundreds of ways, including these:
Surgery: As a natural covering of a surgical site, amniotic membrane reduces inflammation and prevents scarring.
Wound treatment: Traumatic burns, pressure sores, diabetic ulcers or other challenging wounds fail to heal because of inflammation, but natural birth tissue accelerates healing by reducing inflammation.
Optical uses: Whether an eye wound is the result of a chemical burn, surgery or other injury, a patch of birth tissue speeds healing with a lower risk of scarring that may compromise vision.
Orthopedic applications: Because of the lower risk of swelling, birth tissue is ideal for spinal surgery, tendon repair and other orthopedic uses.
Oral applications: Oral surgeons and dentists often prefer to use birth tissue to speed up the healing process for their surgical patients and to treat gum disease by promoting new cell growth in the patient’s own mouth.
Sports medicine: A rapid recovery is often critical to an athlete, and birth tissue can accelerate the healing of an injury while minimizing the risk of debilitating scarring.
Virtually every branch of medicine can benefit from birth tissue, and researchers continue to discover new uses. Doctors even use cord blood to treat certain cancers. The miraculous properties in birth tissue can promote the body’s own healing process, reduce the amount of pain and suffering a patient may experience, speed patient recovery, and offer fewer negative side effects, such as swelling and scarring.
Are You Convinced?
Perhaps you are concerned about the risk to you or your child during the recovery of the birth tissue. However, the recovery process takes place after your child is born, so there is no danger to the baby or to you.
