By donating the placenta, which is collected by an absolutely painless method, your baby begins their life as a donor, helping others heal and lead healthier lives. What a wonderful way to come into this world!
There is no age limit for this program. So long as the donor mother has had a healthy, delivery, the placenta is accepted regardless of her age.

The donation process is simple and straightforward with 4 easy steps
- If your delivery is preferably a caesarean section, please discuss the option of donating your placenta with your consulting gynaecologist.
- Once you have made your decision to donate your placenta, contact LifeCell on 1800-266-5533 to inform us about it.
- You will then need to sign a consent form, and answer an easy questionnaire regarding your medical history. Please note that all the information, including your identity, will be kept highly confidential.
- LifeCell will then arrange an expert paramedic to be present at the time of the delivery, to collect your placenta along with the maternal blood sample, to confirm the absence of any disqualifying disorders.
The amnion & chorion membranes, which form distinct layers of the placenta have special cells & bioactive molecules, which promote our body’s healing mechanism. Grafts made from these membranes have, therefore, been utilised in wound healing & ophthalmic treatments for several decades.
Cutting-edge research is being carried out globally to investigate the potential applications of these placental membranes in the treatment of several other conditions related to urology, dentistry, cartilage repair, and spinal conditions (1).
Each placental tissue donated can be used to prepare almost 8 - 10 transplantable amniotic membrane grafts. In other words, your single donation can help improve the lives of up to 10 patients in need.
Do not miss out on this precious once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make the world a healthier place.
