Cord Blood contains numerous hematopoietic stem cells that help in the treatment of certain diseases including cancers, MS, and other diseases. Cord Blood can only be donated immediately following your baby’s birth.
Not only can you donate the cord blood within the umbilical cord, you can also donate the cord itself. Stem cells from the umbilical cord are used to treat auto-immune diseases such as Parkinson’s and Crohn’s. They are also used in vaccines for epidemic viruses.
