What is
Cord Blood?

Cord blood is the stem cell rich blood that remains in the umbilical cord and placenta immediately after your baby is born. These stem cells are known as Hematopoietic stem cells, or blood forming cells, the building blocks of our blood, and are the foundation of our immune system.

The Value of Cord Blood

Cord blood stem cells are incredibly powerful and unique. They can reproduce into red blood cells, which carry oxygen throughout our bodies; white blood cells, which fight off infections; and platelets, which create clots preventing us from bleeding excessively. They can boost the immune system and repopulate new blood cells after being damaged by disease or illness.

A perfect match

Your baby is a 100% match to their own stem cells. Their cells can be used to treat certain non-genetic diseases and cancers. Siblings and family members may also be a potential match. Treatments using a family member’s cells can be twice as successful as treatments from a non-relative or donor.
