You only have one chance to collect the easily extractable and incredibly powerful stem cells in your newborn baby’s umbilical cord blood. Since cord blood stem cells are already being used to treat more than 80 diseases, and ongoing scientific research suggests that their value will only increase over your child’s lifetime, now is the time to start thinking about cord blood preservation for your family’s future.

What Are Cord Blood Stem Cells?

Cord blood is the blood in your newborn’s umbilical cord that contains a high amount of regenerative stem cells. Stem cells are the non-controversial building blocks that make up our body’s organs, blood, tissue, and immune system. They are easily and painlessly extracted after the umbilical cord has been clamped.

Why Private Cord Blood Storage?

Your baby’s stored cord blood stem cells will remain a readily available, guaranteed genetic match throughout your child’s life. Additionally, there is much a higher statistical probability of a family member’s stem cells matching those of your baby than those from a public bank. This is especially true for families with an uncommon ethnicity or mixed-race background. Although we recommend cord blood storage for all expectant parents, it is particularly important for families with a history of one or more of the diseases listed below, since the odds are higher that your child, or their sibling, may one day benefit from one of the many life-saving treatments provided by cord blood stem cells.
