Because umbilical cord blood banking is a relatively new medical breakthrough and many Americans are still asking themselves, “What is cord tissue?”, most people have a lot of questions about the cord blood and umbilical cord tissue banking process. That’s why we’ve compiled an extensive amount of information on our website and our blog, so you can be properly informed on all of the cord tissue banking benefits.

CariCord is one of the family cord blood services that strives to appropriately preserve cord blood and cord tissue and the stem cells they contain. Like with any professional service, there is more than one option available, but we hope that you will find that CariCord is the best choice for family cord banking and/or cord tissue banking.

Another option is the choice between public or private umbilical cord blood banking. Public cord blood banking means that you choose to donate your child’s cord blood or cord tissue to a public cord blood banking service, much like giving blood to a traditional blood bank. Private umbilical cord tissue banking can also be known as family cord banking. This is because your child’s cord blood or cord tissue is securely stored for private use, whether to treat a potential disease in that child later on, or help a sibling or close family member who is a blood match. This will hopefully answer the question, “What is cord tissue and cord blood banking?”

When it comes to pricing, there is no substitute for quality, which is what our family cord blood services hopefully offer. Typically, cord blood banking costs $2,395 and cord tissue banking only costs $795. The umbilical cord blood and tissue banking package, which includes both (normally $3,190), currently costs $2,390. This $800 discount is one of the cord tissue banking benefits when you choose to combine both together. Further discounts are available in some cases, such as when we have a special sale, and you can make payments over a period of 6, 12, or 18 months if need be.
