How donating your placental tissue after the birth of your baby can help wound care in others
The placental membrane is the inner layer of the placenta that surrounds your developing baby during pregnancy. This membrane creates the ideal environment for your baby to grow and develop. This complex membrane is a rich source of nutrients and growth promoting factors that manage cellular activity and has been used in medicine for hundreds of years to treat hard to heal wounds and burns. Indeed, it was used as a wound covering thousands of years ago by the ancient Egyptians.
