After your baby is born, the umbilical cord will be clamped and within minutes, the obstetrician or caregiver will drain the cord blood into a sterile double-wrapped single-use blood bag. This procedure is painless and risk-free to both you and your baby. It takes about 3 minutes and does not alter the birthing process in any way. It can be done with either a vaginal or caesarean delivery.
Umbilical cord stem cells can be collected through a simple, non-invasive process at time of birth, without any harm to the mother or the baby.
Preserving your baby's umbilical cord stem cells protects your baby and family from several medical conditions.
Your baby's umbilical cord is a rich source of stem cells that can treat many medical conditions. Preserving these stem cells at birth can provide your baby and family protection against these medical conditions for a healthy future.
