Why Save Umbilical Cord Blood?
Stem cells save lives. Your baby’s cord blood stem cells are a perfect genetic match for your newborn, which eliminates the risk of transplant rejection. There is a high probability of matching a sibling or parent, thereby reducing their risk of transplant rejection, as well. Saving your baby's cord blood provides your family with the best chance of survival, recovery, and a renewed quality of life.
How is Cord Blood Collected?
Cord blood collection is simple, painless and poses no risk to mother or baby. After the umbilical cord has been clamped and cut, your doctor will sanitize a small section of the cord and insert the collection bag needle. The excess blood that had remained in the placenta and umbilical cord after your baby's birth will flow into the collection bag by gravity. When the flow stops, the collection bag is sealed, labeled and ready for transport to the lab in the MiracleCord StemCare™ collection kit.
