Life is short so secure your family in ways you can. And yes, it’s true! Cord life banking can save you and your family in ways not even I have imagined possible.
I did not understand cord life banking and stem cells during my first pregnancy and I’m glad I did already and I can now explain it in the simplest way I can.
What is cord blood banking?
Aside from the details I shared before on this (click here) and more here, I can explain that cord blood banking is basically the collection of the remaining cord blood from the placenta and umbilical cord connected to the newborn baby upon childbirth. The cord blood collected contains possible lifesaving cells known as stem cells. It can possibly cure many forms of disorders like forms of leukemia, lymphoma, and anemia.
But I suggest an expert can really explain this further and in more details. It’s actually AMAZING!
Why I appreciate cord blood banking more?
I didn’t really know this at first but this one’s one of the things I like about cord blood banking:
The cord blood / stem cells stored may also be used (in case of emergency) by your relatives (if compatible) in the event that they suffer from any disorder that can possibly cured or treated with stem cells from the cord blood collected.
I know… it can get confusing sometimes with all the medical and scientific terms right? So there’s a chance for moms and expectant moms out there to know more about cord blood banking (also called stem cell banking) and it can be explained to your by the experts and doctors too.
Here’s a tip though. Here’s a guide of what I asked before when I didn’t know anything about it. You may use this as your guide when you visit the Cordlife booth 2 & 3 on June 3-4, 2017 (10am-8pm) for the 5th Momzilla fair at the 4th floor of the Century City Mall, Makati City:
