It is important for you to be aware of the potential value of the stem cells found in your newborn’s umbilical cord. Because you only have one chance to collect your newborn’s stem cells, we believe it is very important for you to be fully educated so you can make an informed choice regarding your banking options.

Cord blood is the blood that remains in the umbilical cord after your baby has been delivered. Like bone marrow, this blood is a rich source of stem cells that are used in many lifesaving medical treatments today, and are showing promise in the treatment of conditions such as brain injury and juvenile diabetes.   Upon completing the education program, print and sign the consent form that appears at the end of the program and return it to your healthcare provider at your next appointment.
Cord blood banking offers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to protect your new baby and take advantage of potential future uses of stem cells. Banking your baby's cord blood stem cells is a potentially life-saving gift for your child and your entire family. Stem cell transplants are among the most promising medical treatments of the future, and have the potential to treat more than 80 diseases.
