Did you know? Your baby’s umbilical cord is made of cord tissue and cord blood that are rich sources of powerful stem cells. These cells are being researched for their ability to act like our body’s own personal repair kit and may be able to help our bodies heal in new ways. Today, cord blood stem cells have been used in more than 35,000 transplants worldwide to regenerate healthy blood and immune systems.
Given this, you may wish to consider banking your baby’s cord to have access to these stem cells in the future.
