There are so many decisions to make as an expectant parent – some easier than others. One decision my husband and I spent the most time on, when expecting our first baby, was cord blood banking. We researched and talked to doctors to help us arrive at our final decision. One of the most important questions we asked ourselves was what the benefit could be to our family.
How Can Cord Blood Help Your Family Tomorrow?
What is Cord Blood?
Cord blood is a rich source of viable stem cells that have been used for potential improvements in over 75 conditions all around the world. To date there have been over 21,000 cord blood transplants using samples from cord blood storage programs. Cord blood stem cells have been used to test potential new treatments for conditions such as Type 1 Diabetes, cerebral palsy, autism, spinal cord injuries – along with dozens of others. Medical experts are hopeful that more work in this area can help more families.
