Many Western New Yorkers know about Unyts’ role in organ, eye, tissue and blood donation, but few are aware of an avenue of donation that offers a unique opportunity for a very special group of people – new moms. The Birth Tissue Donation Program at Unyts allows women who are delivering by cesarean section to donate their birth tissue- the placenta, a portion of the umbilical cord and the amniotic fluid- to help in healing for many patients in need.
