What are the advantages of umbilical cord saving?

 

Umbilical Cord SavingWith today's technology, after a baby's birth, you can save the umbilical cord.

An advantage of umbilical cord saving is for a future transplant or bone marrow should the child ever need it. An example is that high radiation and chemotherapy used to treat cancer now also kills good cells in the bone marrow.  Those patients need bone marrow transplants to survive this drastic treatment.  If the patient had his own umbilical cord blood, it could be used to regenerate their bone marrow that was free of cancer cells.

You would want to seriously consider umbilical cord banking if the newborn baby's family has a history of diseases that may require a bone marrow transplant.   Some of these diseases are: leukemia or lymphoma, aplastic anemia, severe sickle cell anemia, and severe combined immune deficiency (SCID), which a rare type of immune deficiency.

Keep in mind that you will have only once chance in the minutes following the babies birth to collect and save your baby's umbilical cord blood.  This one decision may help protect your child from a long list of life threatening diseases far into the future.

Your baby's umbilical cord blood is an abundant source of life-giving stem cells like those found in bone marrow. Cord blood stem cells are now being used to treat over 70 diseases with many more on the horizon. Sadly, cord blood is often discarded at birth and lost forever. But now, like so many new parents, you can safely store it for the unexpected.
