The term “perinatal” literally means “around birth,” and the word is usually used to refer to the time period just before and after birth—usually from a few weeks before to a few weeks after.
Perinatal tissue, however, refers to the organs and tissues that surround and nourish a child in the womb—such as the amniotic sac and tissue, amniotic fluid, umbilical cord, and placenta.
Perinatal tissue injections, as you might imagine, are made from this tissue—after it’s been carefully screened, processed, and preserved.
