     I'm here with my sponsor, the cord blood bank LifebankUSA, once again to pop in and share a little bit about cord blood banking with my readers! Cord blood banking is one of the many, (many) options and decisions on the table for us when we become new parents and if it's something that you have been considering, here are a few facts about cord blood banking with LifebankUSA:
.
++ LifebankUSA is a private cord blood bank and one of the few companies that additionally offer placental tissue banking.
.
++ Collecting and storing stem cells from a newborn's umbilical cord and from the placenta at birth could one day be used to treat serious illness that may occur in your child or a family member.
.
++ Stem cells from cord blood have been used to treat over 30,000 patients worldwide!
.

++ Since 1988, transplanted stem cells have been used to treat 80 different diseases!
.
++ Saving placenta blood in addition to cord blood preserves a significantly larger amount of stem cells.
.
++ LifebankUSA offers many payment plans to help spread the cost of private cord blood banking and to make it more affordable for families.

.
.
     Ultimately, we opted out of cord blood banking for financial reasons when our babies were born. However, I am incredibly fascinated by the science of storing your own babies stem cells to protect your family against disease and it is definitely something I will consider again in the future. 
.
     Have any of you stored / or are planning to store your child's stem cells? I'd love to hear more!

  1. Oh that baby picture of Asher is melting my heart!! We didn’t do the cord blood banking with Mason…but I am seriously considering it if we have a second baby. Thank you for sharing about this.

  3. That picture is adorable! We have always wanted to bank our baby's cord blood, but like you just couldn't for financial reasons. However, this time I'm delivering at a different hospital and they offer FREE cord blood banking. Obviously it's not going to be reserved for us, but still, my husband and I were so excited that we can finally maybe contribute and help someone else!
