When a child is born, their umbilical cord contains blood and tissue which are rich in newborn stem cells. For families who’ve chosen blood banking, cord blood is collected by your obstetrician after the baby is born. They will clamp and cut the umbilical cord, then will draw blood from the cord in a process that only takes 10 minutes. These samples undergo quality testing, and are then securely stored in the lab until they are needed.
The body of research on the value of stem cells is growing rapidly, as is the number of diseases and conditions where stem cell therapies apply. To date, more than 80 life-threatening diseases, including leukemia and other cancers can be treated, in part, with stem cell therapies. Storing newborn stem cells can provide new families additional treatment options long after the diapers and cribs are packed away.
Through a partnership with Cbr, Axia Women’s Health is thrilled to be able to offer 10 lucky new families a chance to win 5 years of free cord blood and tissue collection and storage—worth nearly $5,000!
