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.

  1. Cord banking was super new when I had my baby 18 years ago. No one mentioned it before her birth. I’m glad it’s something parents can consider now.

  2. I think cord blood banking is great and love the strides they are making in what they are able to do with it. I wish it wasn’t so cost prohibitive for new parents though.

  3. This was not an option when my sons were born, but if it had been, I would have definitely done it. I f I have another grandchild, I will try my best to get my son to participate.

  4. I wanted to do this when I had my daughter but it was not in my budget at that time but I think it is a great thing to do

  5. As a grandmother this program was not available when my children were born. I think all mothers should consider this…

  6. Cord Banking is much more popular now than it was when I had my kids. I support public blood banking that is available to everyone It makes for a much bigger pool and higher chance of a match
