First National Amniotic Fluid Awareness Day Educates Women About the Benefits of Amniotic Fluid Beyond Pregnancy
Date:1/27/2011

BOSTON, Jan. 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Most women know that amniotic fluid is the nourishing and protective liquid that surrounds a growing baby, but are unaware of the potential of amniotic fluid beyond pregnancy. Amniotic fluid contains mesenchymal stem cells, which are at the forefront of medical research, and, if collected and stored, these stem cells may help protect the child throughout their lifetime. Biocell Center, leader in amniotic fluid preservation, is proud to participate in Amniotic Fluid Awareness Day to educate expecting parents about banking amniotic fluid and staying on the cutting edge of trends in the rapidly advancing field of regenerative medicine.  

"The technology to preserve amniotic fluid did not exist until relatively recently so, for decades, doctors and labs have discarded what has proven to be one of the richest, natural sources of mesenchymal stem cells," said Kate Torchilin, CEO of Biocell Center. "Amniotic fluid banking is the latest advance in stem cell preservation. Research with these stem cells is leading to significant medical discoveries, and the only way to take advantage is to plan ahead and preserve now."

The stem cells contained in amniotic fluid are multifunctional and can grow into many different organs and tissues. Research shows that these stem cells could potentially be used to repair cartilage in the knee, heal wounds or grow heart valves.  

"Decisions about prenatal testing and stem cell banking can be overwhelming, so it is important for women who are pregnant or trying to conceive to learn about all their options and be empowered to make the right decision for themselves and their family's needs," said Elizabeth Battaglino Cahill, RN, Executive Director of HealthyWomen, the leader in independent health information for women. "We hope that stem cell banking becomes a routine consideration during pregnancy planning and that women become educated early on."
