I’m heading towards the end of my pregnancy and with the holidays here I’ve been looking for gift options that revolve around my future baby. So if you happen to know someone expecting this Holiday season then I have the perfect holiday gift for them.
The biggest thing that I’ve been looking into is cord blood banking with Cord Blood Registry (CBR). I didn’t do it with my first 2 daughters, but with this baby I’m hoping to do it. I honestly never educated myself before, but since then I have started looking into newborn stem cell preservation and it has so many great things to offer.
If you’re not familiar with CBR, here’s a little info. Some of the great things that stood out to me were: CBR believes passionately in the power of healthy families. They actually offer a Newborn Possibilities Program® that helps families with a qualifying medical need by covering all costs for preserving their child’s newborn stem cells and storing them for 5 years.
With that, as part of a stem cell transplant, cord blood may be used as a potential treatment option for many conditions including certain cancers, and blood, immune and metabolic disorders. They have heartwarming stories of families who stored with them and used their samples, like Ava and Luke. And, CBR even invests in research to try to find new uses for cord blood stem cells.
