What is cord blood and what are the benefits of cord blood

Postby cryocell » Mon Mar 07, 2011 1:48 pm

• The blood that remains in your baby’s umbilical cord after it has been cut is called cord blood which is rich in stem cells. These valuable cells which are genetically unique to your baby and family, can only be collected in the minutes after your baby’s birth.
• Preserving your newborn’s stem cells is called cord blood banking and allows you to have your baby’s cord blood saved for potential medical uses to treat life-threatening diseases. If you do not choose to bank your baby’s cord blood, it will be discarded after birth.
• You have only one chance to save your baby’s cord blood for your family since it can only be collected immediately after birth.
• Many expectant families choose to bank their baby’s cord blood for peace of mind, knowing that stem cells can be lifesaving to their baby and family.
• Saving your baby’s cord blood is important since using your own family’s cord blood, if needed, has been shown to have significant advantages compared to using cord blood from an unrelated donor.

If you really liked my post as well as my research resource please reply over my post or more enquiry you can contact the Bank yourself as I found one of my friend has subscribed their this life saving service.

well, unfortunately, this kind of services are still very expensive here in my country (indonesia).
I first think, because the provider is still rare here. But rare provider means difficult techniques and facility doesnt it?
If you do know about cord bank, do you know what is the critical point in this business? Just curious, who knows i got the courage (and fund) to start this service in a good price...
