Important information about storing your baby’s stem cells
As an expectant parent, it is important you have access to as much information as possible to make informed decisions regarding your pregnancy. Nurtured has partnered with Insception Lifebank to ensure you are informed about umbilical cord blood and tissue storage options.
What is cord blood and tissue?
• Cord blood is the blood that remains in your baby’s umbilical cord and placenta
• Cord blood is a rich source of stem cells & other important cells which can be used for treatments now
• Cord tissue is a small segment of the baby’s umbilical cord, which is a rich source of different stem cells not found in cord blood
What can cord blood be used for?
Cord blood is used as an alternative to bone marrow for diseases where a transplant is required. Today, over 35,000 cord blood transplants have been performed worldwide in the treatment of 80+ life-threatening diseases, including leukemias, cancers, immune system deficiencies, and blood disorders.
From time to time we are happy to welcome Insception Lifebank into Nurtured to conduct information sessions.
