5 Reasons To Save Your Child’s Cord Blood

  • Reason #1: Protect your family’s future health

    You have many decisions to make during your pregnancy as you prepare for your baby’s arrival. One of these decisions is whether or not to save your baby’s stem cells. Stem cells are found in high numbers in your baby’s umbilical cord blood and the cord. These genetically unique cells are the building blocks for your baby’s body for blood, organs, tissue and immune system. They can help to repair or rebuild injured or damaged cells for your child and could possibly aid other family members. By banking your child’s blood you have the opportunity to preserve these potentially life-saving cells.

  • Reason #2: Many diseases can be cured or treated

    Cord blood stem cells are used in the treatment or cure of more than 80 diseases. Doctors are able to use it to treat many cancers and other malignant diseases such as leukemia, lymphoma, autoimmune diseases and more.Stem cells found in cord blood are much easier to match to a patient than bone marrow because it does not need to be as perfect a match as is required with bone marrow, which is why doctors are increasingly relying on this life-saving alternative to bone marrow transplants.

  • Reason #3: Always a perfect match for your baby

    To be a match for any kind of stem cell transplant you must be a “match” to the donor cells. For a transplant coming from a bone marrow donor, a perfect 6 out 6 Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) tissue type match is required. For cord blood stem cells, only a 4 of 6 HLA match is necessary. Your baby will always be a perfect match to his or her cord blood should the need ever arise for a stem cell transplant. But did you know that for a full sibling there is also a 1-in-4 chance that they will also be a high-quality match? And cord blood stem cells are also a “half match,” or 3 of 6, for each parent.

  • Reason #4: Research is revealing exciting future uses

    It’s an exciting time in stem cell research. More and more successful transplants and medical breakthroughs are leading expectant parents to cord blood banking. The results of medical researchers studying the effects that stem cells have on many diseases are encouraging. They are looking at the use of stem cells in the treatments of spinal cord injuries, stoke, Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, HIV, diabetes, and many, many more illnesses, injuries and diseases.

  • Reason #5: There’s no reason NOT to bank

    Whether it’s to protect your family’s future medial health, to treat a sibling with a current ongoing condition, or just for peace of mind, there is essentially no reason not to bank your baby’s umbilical cord blood. The scores of diseases currently being treated, coupled with the promising future potential being discovered every day, make the value in saving your baby’s cord blood even more important today. Banking your child’s cord blood is an investment in your family’s future.

FACT:

Trials are under way using cord stem cels to treat debilitating conditions such as heart disease, stroke, liver disease, Parkinson’s disease, and spinal cord injury.
