Americord Launches Digital Birth Plan

NEW YORK, NY (June 2, 2017): Americord, the fastest growing cord blood bank in the country, and a leader in umbilical cord blood, cord tissue, and placental tissue banking announces the launch of its Digital Birth Plan.

Designed to help expectant parents make informed choices about important decisions from labor through delivery and beyond, the Americord Digital Birth Plan covers medical procedures, personal comfort, and bonding moments.  It guides first-time mothers through a list of preferences to discuss with their family, OBGYN or midwife, hospital, and doula.

This new approach to birth planning is designed for today’s busy lifestyle. It’s fully digital for use on phones, pcs, or tablets, and provides links to helpful explanations and tips about options that might be unfamiliar to first-time mothers.  The format allows users to create a log-in to develop a birth plan at their convenience.

“Recognizing that preparing for baby’s arrival can sometimes seem overwhelming, we created this easy-to-use tool to explore options and spark conversations.” commented   Erin Willigan, Vice President of Marketing for Americord, “Our Digital Birth Plan is another resource that helps to expectant parents learn about their options and plan for a health future for their growing family.”

This Digital Birth Plan is the latest tool in Americord’s growing library of resources that offer factual, impartial information to help expectant families make informed decisions. It builds on their Pricing Calculator, which creates custom comparisons of the leading cord blood banks, and on their Topic Center, which explores a wide range of topics related to a healthy pregnancy and beyond.
