The cord blood remaining inside your baby’s umbilical cord contains a rich source of powerful stem cells. In banking your baby’s cord blood, you are preserving the stem cells that helped your newborn develop during pregnancy. These valuable stem cells can only be collected and preserved immediately after birth.
Cord blood stem cells have the unique ability to repair and regenerate healthy blood and immune systems.
Cord Tissue Stem Cells
Your baby’s cord tissue contains different types of stem cells than those found in the cord blood. Within cord tissue are the powerful mesenchymal stem cells which have the ability to heal, repair, and regenerate muscle, bones, cartilage, skin and the tissue parts of our internal organs.
Cord blood and cord tissue stem cells are the building blocks of our bodies. They each have very different roles in the body and regenerative medicine. Choosing both cord blood and cord tissue will provide more security for your family’s future.
Cord blood and tissue banking is completely safe for both the mother and the newborn baby since cord blood stem cells are collected after the baby is born and after the umbilical cord has been clamped and cut.
When you bank your child’s cord blood stem cells, there are two different parts of the cord that can be utilized in future stem cell therapies.
