Posted by Steph

Cord blood banking. It sounds complicated, and with everything else flying through your mind as you prepare for your new baby’s arrival, cord blood banking may seem too overwhelming to add to the list.

Well, we’re here to tell you that with Americord, it’s not complicated. We understand how stressful pregnancy and baby prep can be, so we want to make the process of banking your baby’s blood as simple as possible.

So simple, in fact, that we broke the process down into three easy steps:

  1. Enroll in Americord’s Registry

Or, if you haven’t already, download our guide to learn more about cord blood banking and the advantages of using Americord.

  1. Receive the Americord Collection Kit

This kit includes our top of the line, FDA approved collection materials and step-by-step instructions.

  1. Bring the collection kit with you to the hospital when you go into labor

Make sure you tell your doctor that you are banking your baby’s cord blood so that they can plan accordingly. As soon as you give birth, our medical courier will pick up the collection kit directly from your bedside and bring it straight to our lab.

And just like that, your baby’s cord blood is banked! Still have questions? Feel free to contact us any time at 866-503-6005 or [email protected].
