MORE HOSPITALS AND MOMS TRUST BIRTH TISSUE DONOR SERVICES TO SAVE AND HEAL LIVES THROUGH BIRTH TISSUE DONATION

Since 2017, Birth Tissue Donor Services (BTDS) has established over two dozen donation programs in hospitals across the country. These programs have given thousands of mothers the opportunity to donate their birth tissue to help others.

PERSONALIZED SERVICES FOR EVERY HOSPITAL WE SERVE

We understand each hospital has unique workflows which is why we develop a customized birth tissue donation program for each hospital. Birth Tissue Donor Services is committed to providing superior service to all our hospital partners, giving them the confidence that every mom’s generous decision to donate her birth tissue is honored with respect, integrity and professionalism.

THE BIRTH TISSUE DONOR SERVICES DIFFERENCE

  • Ensures a seamless integration that considers each labor and delivery unit’s specific requirements, parameters and workflows.

  • Minimizes extra work for labor and delivery care teams.

  • Provides an elevated birth tissue experience for mothers.

  • Guarantees every expectant mother’s choice to donate will be honored.

In our experience, with the integration of the birth tissue donation program, we have had minimal extra work for the labor and delivery staff. Birth Tissue Donor Services works to complete all the steps possible so that clinical staff only need to collect a few extra tubes of blood with IV starts and fill collection vials if collecting in the OR. There is no extra paperwork, education, or documentation required for staff.

Why wouldn’t you have a birth tissue donation program? There is absolutely no extra work on your staff. It makes patients feel good about the donation, and the staff and physicians feel like we are making a difference. Birth Tissue Donor Services provides all the supplies that are needed, so there are no costs incurred to the unit. Their staff are so nice and professional and blend seamlessly into the team. I honestly wish we had started this partnership before we did. I can’t think of one single reason not to offer your patients the opportunity to donate.

BENEFITS OF BIRTH TISSUE DONATION

Donated birth tissue includes the placenta, umbilical cord and amniotic fluid. The unique properties of birth tissue allografts help minimize inflammation and prevent infection. These allografts allow patients with burns or chronic wounds to heal exponentially faster and with minimal scarring compared to traditional treatments.

Some uses of birth-tissue allografts:

  • Severe burns

  • Ophthalmic applications

  • Spinal injuries

  • Chronic wounds, including diabetic ulcers

  • Sports medicine

  • MOHS surgery

 

“When asked to donate, I immediately said yes! My brother was in an accident that caused severe wounds and burns. He was admitted to Vanderbilt University Medical Center and was treated with placental skin grafts. Today, he is almost scar-free, has full function of his extremities and is doing very well.”

– Donor Mom, Tennessee

With over 50 years of combined experience in establishing donor programs across the country, we provide hospitals confidence to offer a service to their new moms that is safe and provides an opportunity to help heal the lives of others. Birth Tissue Donor Services is led by staff with the Certified Tissue Bank Specialist (CTBS) designation and is regulated and licensed by the FDA. We're proud to partner with 25+ hospitals nationwide, shown below in gold.

A MOTHER'S DECISION
TO DONATE HER BIRTH
TISSUE DOES NOT
IMPEDE THE SAFE
DELIVERY OF HER BABY

  • Whether delivering by C-section or vaginally, scheduled, or unscheduled, expectant moms are given the opportunity to donate.

  • There is no cost to the patient or hospital and no additional procedures are needed.

  • Birth tissue is only acquired following the safe delivery of a healthy baby.

"I am thankful I was given the opportunity to change another person’s life for the better. I truly believe what Birth Tissue Donor Services is doing is so incredible and important!

“Many of our patients are unaware that programs

like Birth Tissue Donor Services exist when they

are admitted. They are usually ecstatic to donate

and overjoyed to help others with their participation

in the program. Since the introduction of the

program, we have had many staff members as

patients (or their family members) and they all

place priority on being participants.”
