A special thanks to Lifebank USA for sponsoring this giveaway!
Congratulations if you are an expecting mom! the new joys of mother hood and sleepless nights are already beginning. Kids are wonderful blessings to our families and we should enjoy every moment. I can remember my excitement when I found out that we were expecting. Once the news is confirmed, there are so many questions that may pop into your head, but one of the questions that stood out the most to me was whether my babies would be born healthy or not.
There’s no doubting whether we all want healthy children, but one of the things that expecting moms can do to help ease their fears is to sign-up for cord blood banking. I am a proponent of cord blood banking because a newborn’s placenta is packed with so many life saving attributes that doctors can use in the future. In fact,
Every day, parents are choosing to bank their child’s cord blood because they know these powerful cells could one day be used to save a close family member’s life. Parents choose to also bank placenta blood with LifebankUSA to make their cord blood collection even more powerful, providing them with even greater peace of mind (via LifebankUSA).
LifebankUSA is the only cord blood bank with proprietary technology offering placenta blood banking with cord blood banking to expectant parents. We are also the only company in the world to release placenta stem cell units for transplant (via LifebankUSA).
AMAZING CORD BLOOD NEWS:
Stem cells in cord blood have transformative potential and have been used to treat over 30,000 patients worldwide. It’s been shown that using a higher number of stem cells in a transplant leads to better engraftment and survival. Did you know that you can preserve significantly MORE of your baby’s stem cells by adding placenta blood banking to your cord blood collection?
