Pick Up Times

If the baby arrives later in evening or overnight, our courier will arrive the next morning for the pickup. The kit is temperature controlled and FDA approved, so it is safe to keep in the room with you until the courier arrives.

Storing Placenta?

On occasion, hospitals have refused to release Placentas in order to complete testing or due to policy. We encourage you to discuss your intention to store placenta with your doctor and hospital staff and then proceed in the best interest of your health. If the hospital refuses to release your placenta, we can provide you with a “Release Placental Tissue” letter in accordance with the laws of your state.

If you have any questions, please free to contact us directly. Congratulations on your new addition!

Best,
