Baby's umbilical cord

Is anyone going to donate their babies umbilical cord with blood? I'm going to. We were going to save it and do the payments, but we talked it over and said that if anything happens to where our daughter needs bone marrow blood, we will just donate to her:) What are your thoughts? Are you going to donate or pay for the monthly fees?

 I've never heard of anyone saving the cord itself. I always save their stumps after they fall off though. I don't know why..it's kinda gross lol
