CORD BLOOD BANKING?
Cord blood banking is the process of collecting your baby's cord blood at birth. The process is quick and painless for both you and your baby.
During the procedure, blood-rich cells that contain more than 10X stem cells than blood marrow are collected for storage in a cord bank of your choice. This, cord blood, can later be used for research purposes or as part of your baby's regenerative treatment should the need arise in the future.

When inside your womb, your baby gets the nutrients and oxygen they need to grow through the placenta. What you need to know is that there is something unique about the blood that flows through the placenta and that is – it is a good source of blood-forming cells also known as stem cells.
These special cells have the ability to reconstitute your kid’s entire blood supply should the need arise.
As a matter of fact, it is a lot easier to collect cord blood than bone marrow in the quest for finding stem cells.
Once collected, cord blood is normally frozen and stored – and if you keep it in a private bank, it will always be available for your little one to use for most of their life. Research shows that cord blood can be stored for over 20 years.
Alternatively, you can donate it to someone who badly needs it.
Cord Blood is collected
Cord blood collection is done at birth before the placenta and umbilical cord are discarded. The process is done after the umbilical cord has been separated from the baby. Therefore, the baby and mother won’t experience any discomfort or agony from the extraction cycle.
Once the collection is done, the blood is sealed and sent to a lab of your choice for testing and storage (within 48 hours after collection).
There are two kinds of blood banks that you can choose from:
Private Blood Banks
With cord blood being such an important part of your kid’s future health, it is important that the storage is done in a private umbilical cord blood banking facility. This way, you get the highest standards available and dedicated attention. However, private banks normally charge a fee for these services.
Public blood banks
This option works best if you’re choosing to donate your cord blood for the greater good of those who need it e.g., cancer patients. Unfortunately, cord blood stored in a public registry will not be saved exclusively for your family. No fees are charged for public cord blood banking facilities.
“Overall, the cost of storing your little one’s cord blood in a bank varies based on a wide number of factors. If it is okay with you, we can always walk you through these options so you can make a choice that has your family’s best interests at heart.”
6 REASONS TO PRESERVE YOUR BABY’S CORD BLOOD
The first cord blood transplant occurred in 1988. More than 30 years later, researchers and physicians have continued to learn more about current and potential uses to help the body heal itself.
Can be used as part of a stem cell transplant to help rebuild the immune system for certain cancers, blood, and immune disorders.
Cord blood & cord tissue has been used in more than 40,000 stem cell transplants worldwide, from both public donor and private family banks, to help rebuild healthy blood and immune systems. Watch how one family used it for leukemia.
With more than 100 clinical trials in progress worldwide studying cord blood to help advance current applications in transplant medicine, as well as investigating possible future applications in regenerative medicine, we’re optimistic that the future holds even more potential.
Regenerative medicine could be a game-changer. More than 80% of the cord blood used by CBR client families has been for experimental regenerative medicine applications, like cerebral palsy and autism.
Full siblings have up to a 75% chance of being at least a partial genetic match. Your baby is always a 100% match to their own cord blood. Use will be determined by the treating physician.
