Study Confirms Third Trimester Amniotic Fluid a Reliable Source of Stem Cells for Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Banking
Date:2/16/2011

many more pregnant women to save amniotic fluid.

Amniotic fluid preservation has been widely available in Europe for years, and is rapidly gaining traction in the US. Families banking amniotic fluid now can give their child many options for the future.

"I recommend that moms undergoing certain prenatal tests, such as amniocentesis, in the second or third trimester, discuss saving this fluid with their doctor as soon as they know they will be having an amnio," says Dr. Lucy Bayer, the chief Maternal Fetal Medicine Doctor at St. Elizabeth Hospital and one of the investigators for the study. "Additionally, I am very excited about these findings, as they affirm amniotic fluid as an excellent source of cells for tissue regeneration."

The study comes out just 2 weeks after the first national Amniotic Fluid Awareness Day that educated expecting families about the benefits of amniotic fluid beyond pregnancy.
