Information for Expectant Parents

Parent Information for Cord Blood

Expectant parents are faced with important decisions, even before their baby is born. One of the most important is a life-altering decision about whether to bank their baby’s umbilical cord blood, or donate it to help others. If the precious stem cells in cord blood are not banked, they are discarded as medical waste.

There’s no one choice that’s right for all parents. But health care professionals and parents have developed guidelines to help with the decision.
