Donating your placenta after delivery is painless, safe and free for you and your baby, and can help heal others.
How would you like the opportunity to help people heal from a variety of medical issues, just by filling out a simple form? If you are a mom having a scheduled c-section, you can give the gift of healing after your baby is born.
Donor Network of Arizona's Birth Tissue Donation program allows moms with a scheduled c-section the option to donate their placenta for the purpose of healing. Instead of being discarded, your placenta can be donated to help others after your baby is born. It is free, safe and painless for you and the baby.
Moms just like Kayla Click have made the decision to donate their placenta following a scheduled c-section. When Kayla’s doctor presented her with the option of placenta donation, she knew immediately that she wanted to donate.
Birth tissue donation (placenta and umbilical cord) is a free, safe and painless way for moms to help heal others. The placenta is most often discarded as medical waste, but through donation can be used to heal wounds and help in medical procedures.
Your placenta is full of special cells and tissues that stimulate the body’s own healing mechanism, reducing pain, inflammation and scar tissue while also speeding up the recovery process.
Your placental gift may benefit patients who have a variety of medical needs, such as difficult to heal wounds, sports injuries, Ophthalmic procedures - even dental procedures.

"As a social worker, I always look for my ‘why.’ Always trying to find a way to do more and be more for others and for my family," Kayla said. "Donor Network of Arizona was very pleasant to work with and was so kind during an exciting time."
Baby Weston is now almost one and a half. Thanks to his mom’s generosity, he’s been a natural lifesaver since birth!
Just think - by growing a baby and donating your placenta, you could really make a difference to the quality of life of someone else.
