  • I plan on donating mine, it's free to donate (though it probably wont be avaliable if I personally ever need it) and it could help someone who is very sick. I can't afford to bank it for ourselves, but it makes sense to donate it to me.

  • We banked our baby's cord blood with the Cord Blood Registry (CBR). It was expensive..but we saw it as added insurance for the health of our baby. Plus we rest easier knowing (God Forbid) should we need it we have it stored with one of the leaders in the industry (Viacord being the other one). Checkout www.thecordbloodregistrymom.com for additional information on CBR and for information on the $250 discount code M5470 (how to use/apply it to get the discount off the fee with CBR). There are so many potential uses for it with medicine and science advancing every day, it cures 70+ diseases today but that could change and we thought that too, was an amazing reason!
