One Chance in a Lifetime to Invest in the Future
What is Cord Blood?
When a baby is born, a small amount of blood gets left behind in the umbilical cord. Traditionally, this blood and the umbilical cord itself was discarded. Now, we know cord blood is an important source of stem cells.
Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs)from cord blood can make a variety of blood cells, including red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. They have been used for over 30 years to treat disease.
What is Cord Blood Banking?
When you choose to bank cord blood, hematopoietic stem cells from the umbilical cord are collected, processed and cryogenically preserved for long-term storage. This ensures that these cells remain viable when your child needs to use them later on in life.
There are so many reasons for preserving your baby’s cord blood.
