There are many possibilities when it comes to cord blood and stem cells. There is research going on right now on the use of stem cells from umbilical cords to cure Luekemia, Diabetes and other diseases. President Obama promised during his campaign to overturn the restrictions to stem cell research put in place while President George W. Bush was in office. Hopefully, this will occur soon.
When I gave birth to my youngest daughter I used Cryo-cell to store my daughters cord blood. My sister was diagnosed with Luekemia and I was diagnosed with Anemia during my pregnancy, my whole outlook on life changed.
My mother-in-law helped me to research what company to use. She is a Registered Nurse and wanted the best program which was safe and was easy for my Obstetrician the hospital to use. When she called Cryo-Cell, the support nurse told her to “compare us” and answered all of her questions to her satisfaction. Their nurses were available 24 hours a day and still are. My OB was happy with the company and the information they provided to him.
Their service was affordable and the storage fee is too. They always have ongoing offers and even take part in the UPromise program. You can see the current offers they have on their site now.
I highly recommend Cryo-Cell. The collection process was simple and the storage process has been smooth for the past 10 years.
