Testing of amniotic membrane donors

If you agree to donate your amniotic membrane you will be tested to ensure that you do not carry certain viruses. This is done simply with a blood sample that will be taken during your operation. The blood test may need to be repeated approximately six months later.

No blood is ever needed from your baby.
