  • The stem cells in the blood... You can have it frozen so you can use later in life if it is needed...may help with certain types of illnesses.... Some hospitals will take the cord blood for free into a public bank that is open to anyone who may need it.

  • Depends are you looking to save it privately or publicly? We donated our first child's cord blood to a public bank with Cryobanks International.

    They offer private too and give you the pro's and cons to each.
