Question by MrsMurray<3: Cord Blood Banking……??
I keep seeing this everywhere…what is it,and are any of you ladies considering it?
Answer by Vicky
Yes, I will be banking at a public cord bank. The American Association of OBs (or whatever its title is) hasn’t approved private Cord Banking because its direct application hasn’t been fully proven for the baby from whom the cord comes; only siblings or other family members. So bear that in mind. Meanwhile, if you bank in a public location, you’re entitled to get blood (or platelets or whatever) from that bank at any stage, whether or not they can use YOUR banked cord. And it’s totally FREE.
