Have You Decided to Do Cord Blood Banking?

Posted by Martin Smithmyer

There is no doubt that you have been hearing lots about cord blood banking since you have become pregnant. Before you make your final decision, there are some considerations that you may want to know. Did you know that half of all babies are born before their due date? This means that you may be running out of time, if your baby is born before you expect her to be here.

Consider These Important Factors When Deciding to do Cord Blood Banking:

  • Saving your baby’s cord blood stem cells is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
  • We make cord blood banking affordable, $2999 – 20 years of storage included.
  • You save even more with us, because we do not charge for an annual storage fee, like other companies do.

Cord blood banking is a good investment in your child’s future. The stem cells in the cord blood can be used to replace red blood cells that carry oxygen throughout the body, white blood cells that fight infection, or platelets that help blood to clot if there is an injury.

Cord Blood Banking Ensures That Your Baby Has Stem Cells Preserved

Research has shown that cord blood banking is helpful, due to the likelihood of needing a stem cell transplant from cord blood, bone marrow, or peripheral blood. By age 10, 1 in 5,000 children require an allogeneic transplant, or 1 in 10,000 need autologous transplants, or transplants of the child’s own cells. When you bank cord blood, it is available in your own family blood bank, in the event that it is needed.
