Cord-Blood Banking

During my pregnancy, I kept hearing about the option to bank Holden’s umbilical cord blood. Unfortunately I didn’t educate myself incredibly well on it, but I always knew it would be a good thing to do. Cord blood is a huge step in stem-cell research (which I fully support). Banking your newborn’s cord blood can help fight against many diseases (God forbid your little one ever gets any). Cord blood is a lot like bone marrow, but a completely non-invasive process to get it.
If your child ever got a disease that needed a transplant, getting matching stem cells are incredibly difficult to get due to matching requirements. Banking your child’s cord blood means they would have those stem-cells immediately.
On top of that, your child’s stem cells have a 1 in 4 chance of matching a sibling, so it could help them as well.

Cryo-Cell is the leading private cord-blood bank. Since 1882, they have helped over 16,000 families worldwide preserve their newborn’s cord blood.
This holiday season, with the current state of the economy, they are offering a huge discount on the price of banking cord blood. If you sign up by December 24th at midnight, you can Bank Baby’s Cord Blood Only $995
Use promotional code D995 and you will receive special UCORD pricing of $995 for processing, testing and first year of storage plus the cancellation fee is waived. This is an unbelievable discount of $725.

I know it’s hard to put aside money and decide what is important with how strapped we all are for cash these days, but banking cord blood is an amazing gift to give your family and your child.
