Cord Blood Banking with LifebankUSA Win a Britax Marathon Car Seat!


There’s only one opportunity to save your baby’s stem cells for the future…
As an expectant parent, your baby’s health means everything. Right now, he or she is protected in the womb and will soon enter the world. There is a lot to think about and prepare for, but an invaluable step you can take when your child is born is to preserve his/her stem-cell rich cord and placenta blood The ability of stem cells to save lives via cord blood banking has proven successful for replacing abnormal or diseased cells, and treating life-threatening blood disorders such as leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. In fact, since 1988 stem cell transplants have been used to treat some 80 diseases.

Cord Blood Banking with LifebankUSA, you can bank more of the stem cells that are shown to increase transplant success and survival, and more mesenchymal-like cells, which may prove to be useful in the emerging field of regenerative medicine.
