I had never really thought about banking cord blood until I was presented with this blogging opportunity. I did some research and found out that stem cells from umbilical cord blood are known to treat nearly 80 diseases, and have been used in more than 20,000 transplants worldwide and a baby's umbilical cord blood is rich in stem cells. Stem cells are special cells normally found in our bone marrow, and they form the white cells that fight infection, the red cells that carry oxygen, the platelets that promote clotting and the cells of our immune systems. Stem cells are being used for treating such wide-ranging diseases and conditions as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, leukemia, sickle cell disease, severe anemia's and severe combined immunodeficiencys, and stem cell research is continuing! After reading all about cord blood and stem cells, I feel it gives pregnant ladies something to think about!
