Saving your child's cord blood is a unique opportunity
After fertilization, an embryo consists exclusively of stem cells used in the construction of your child and the placenta (see video). At birth a large number of these original stem cells remain unused in the placenta.
These original building blocks of your child are therefore still available in the umbilical cord and placenta and can be collected easily with our collection kit without any risk for mother or child.
In the past we all unknowingly discarded the placenta, including those irreplaceable stem cells. Now we are aware of the enormous potential of stem cells and the possibility is available to collect process and store these cells you have the choice available to you to seize this opportunity. Our foundation made banking affordable for most parents. Check our pricing to see how affordable.
Why are the stem cells from your child so valuable?
Stem cells are used for the treatment of more than 72 conditions and /or cosmetic treatments (f.e. burns etc.) (See our Facebook page) The research of the applicability of stem cells is in full swing and we keep our Facebook page updated.
Worldwide studies lead to very startling results. Until recently it was in many cases necessary with malignant blood diseases to rely on finding a bone marrow donor. The chance of finding the right "match" is only 1 in 40,000 (and even higher for people of Asian or Arab origin). Even after a successful bone marrow transplantation (see video explanation) with a "good" match the rejection rate is still 50%. It is of utmost importance to store the umbilical cord stem cells. These cells are just too valuable to discard.
Using your own stem cells (autologous) when applicable is the best chance for a successful recovery. A natural substitute
The unique opportunity to be able to collect and store the stem cells of your child is a onetime opportunity. It is important to read about the possibilities to make the right decision. Extracting the cord blood from the placenta is easy. The attending mid-wife or professional can do that without any risk for mother or child. After we receive the cord blood in our laboratory the often significant number of available stem cells can be extracted and stored for future use. As this option is only available at time of birth it is important you read all you can about the possibility before and make your decision in time. After ordering a collection kit online it can take 2-3 work days before you receive it. If the birth is imminent it is better to call and ask for the collection kit. It saves time. Every year the number of parents around the world that choose to have the umbilical cord stem cells stored increases and for good reasons.
