Placental & Umbilical Cord Blood Banking

FemmPro OB/GYN: Banking For Your Child's Future

Life Bank Placental and Umbilical Cord Blood Banking

The time of labor and birth of your baby is a wonderful milestone in your family's life, and a miraculous new beginning. Your baby's birth is also the perfect time to collect your newborn's umbilical cord and placenta blood for cryobanking and storage. While many parents are banking their babies' cord blood, you can actually do more by banking stem cells from two usable sources of stem cell-rich blood: the umbilical cord and the placenta. This service is called placental and cord blood banking, and it is available only from LifebankUSA which is registered with the FDA.

Why is banking stem cells the right thing to do for your baby?

Banking placental blood in addition to cord blood doubles the number of segments preserved and increases the total number of stem cells available. This is important for two reasons. First, transplanting more stem cells has been shown to increase the probability of transplant success and survival if needed. Second, having multiple segments available may offer the potential to treat additional conditions that may affect your baby and/or other close family members. Whether this child is your first or an addition to your family, you want to do everything you can to provide for your newborn's well-being now and in the future. Cord blood and placental blood and tissue banking provides you with the ability to collect and preserve potentially lifesaving stem cells and bank even more stem cells. This is accomplished by collecting them from two usable sources of stem cell-rich blood: the umbilical cord and the placenta. And, doing so could one day save the life of your child or a close family member.

FemmPro OB/GYN believes that banking the most stem cells may ensure the best possible outcome for your child or family member in case there is a need for a future transplant. Your doctor simply takes the blood and tissue in a special LifebankUSA collection kit and is sent to their local processing and storage facility in New Jersey.

With LifebankUSA, you also have the option to donate the umbilical cord and placenta to contribute to lifesaving medical breakthroughs that will help save lives through research and transplantation. LifebankUSA accepts donations from any hospital nationwide. So, please consider donating cord blood and placenta to help save lives, even if you make a personal decision not to pursue private banking.
