No I did not. However, I am a L&D nurse and the hospital that I work at has just started offering to collect cord blood FREE of charge. Basically you are donating the cord blood for anyone to use. I think you can also save it for yourself but not sure what the cost is. It is a real neat option, kind of like donating your blood to the red cross or something. Otherwise the blood is just thrown away, at least this way it is getting used.
