Help people with vision problems, burns or ulcers
The placenta is an exceptional organ that is developed during pregnancy.
In general, the placenta is rebutted after the birth. The innermost layer of the placenta is the amniotic membrane, and has antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties.
When you donate a placenta in the Tissue Bank, you help people who have vision problems or those suffering from diseases incurable by conventional drugs.
Uses of the placenta
The donation of placenta is a voluntary, anonymous, and altruistic act. It will be used for any illness that requires it without discrimination.
What do you have to do if you want to donate?
You must tell your gynaecologist that you want to donate the placenta.
The team will assist you and will demand that you sign a consent form and will remove a blood tube for analysis.
Once your baby is born, the team will collect the placenta and bring it to the Tissue Bank so that it can be analysed, processed and brought to the patients.
