Will You Donate Your Cord Blood To Public Or Store In Private Cord Blood Banking?
Would like to know how many of you will donate cord blood to public or choose to store in private cord blood banking for own family use.
I will me donating! To help save lives, in case one day shall we need it, we can go to the blood bank for help too, once a donor, retrieval will be complimentary should there be a suitable match. However they have strict checks to go thru, provided if yours fits the criteria. U may fill up the form online and the representatives will give u a call to explain further:)Read more
I was initially inclined towards donation, but decided to store it privately after realising that SCBB may discard the cord blood without notifying you if it didn't meet their standards (cell count etc). I went with cyroviva as they have a complimentary insurance to cover treatments regarding use of stem cells in the first 2 years of babys life.Read more
