This is probably the most common question we get, and the good news is that you don’t have to worry!

Perinatal tissue is not fetal tissue. Instead, the tissue is gathered only after a healthy delivery by planned C-section. Mothers give their consent in advance to donate the tissue, and neither the mother nor the baby are harmed (or even affected) in any way.

Normally, perinatal tissue would simply be discarded as “medical waste,” but this way it can be reused to provide healing to others!
