In the past, doctors would throw away a baby’s umbilical cord as medical waste. But now you have an incredible opportunity to save this powerful, natural resource that could one day help your child, their siblings, their grandparents—even yourself. Currently, cord blood is being used to treat over 80 life threatening diseases, and medical researchers are looking to see if cord blood can help with diabetes, autism, cerebral palsy and other degenerative diseases.

We provide you a safe and non-invasive way to take part of this new, and proven, modern medicine opportunity. Collecting your baby’s umbilical cord usually only takes a few minutes after you give birth, and it will not interfere with your birth plan. Your partner will still have the opportunity to cut the umbilical cord if they desire, and then your doctor will take care of the rest. Your baby will not undergo anything different than what happens during a delivery where the umbilical cord is not being saved.

There are two ways we can help you save a life with your baby’s umbilical cord. You can save your baby’s umbilical cord for your family in our private facility. Or you can donate your baby’s umbilical cord for someone in need or for medical researchers to find new cures using stem cells from the cord blood and cord tissue.

Freezing and storing your baby’s umbilical cord in our private bank provides a type of “health insurance” for your child, his or her siblings, yourself and your parents that you cannot get anywhere else.

  • The powerful stem cells in the umbilical cord could one day lead to helping not only your baby but also that child’s siblings, yourself or your parents.
  • Studies have shown family members needing to undergo a stem cell transplant have more success if that transplant comes from another family member.
  • Collecting, processing and storing cord blood gives you peace-of-mind knowing a potentially life-saving tool is ready for you to use whenever, and if ever, you might need it.

People who have a family history of diseases, that can be treated with stem cell transplants, should consider this option. People also choose to privately bank their newborn’s cord blood in case their child, or a sick family member, could be treated for certain cancers, blood disorders, metabolic disorders and/or immunodeficiencies.

Studies have shown family members needing to undergo a stem cell transplant have more success if that transplant comes from another family member, and that patient is less likely to develop Graft versus Host Disease (GVHD), where the body rejects the stem cell transplants. With the advances in regenerative medicine, storing your child’s cord blood provides you and your family more protection.


When a patient is being evaluated by a physician for a disease condition or injury treatment they are going to weight the likely effectiveness of the treatment and most importantly the safety. The call to do no harm is particularly interesting with umbilical cord blood stem cells as they are particularly potent and powerful living machines, not simply a small molecule that will be metabolized and eliminated. If you think about the development of a child it begins with the half of the mothers DNA and half of the fathers DNA combining into a novel arrangement to give that baby their unique characteristics. Siblings that have the same parents will have a twenty-five percent chance of an identical HLA (human leukocyte antigen) profile while the other siblings will be at least a partial match. These complementary familial traits can cut down on terrible treatment complications like GVHD (graft vs. host disease) where the transplanted cells are attacking the body and vice versa.
