When your baby is born, cord blood can be collected from your newborn’s umbilical cord that contains powerful stem cells. Cord blood banking allows you to store this cord blood cryogenically for long periods of time.
These stem cells can be used to treat certain diseases, including:
- myelodysplastic syndromes
- certain blood disorders
- inherited metabolic disorders
- certain solid tumors not originating in the blood or immune system
- and more!
Making the decision to bank your baby’s cord blood can help protect them later.
