Cord Blood Banking

I'm currently expecting my 2nd child this Nov. and am interested in peoples' experience with cord blood banking. Any recommendations on the best companies, value, access to stem cells, etc. would be appreciated. I did not bank my first child's cord blood, due to financial limitations, but am seriously considering it this time. Thanks!

  • I banked with a Florida company years ago and frankly, I have to be sure to remember that we have it and to transfer the account #'s, etc. to new computers when we get them. (I also try to make sure the company is still in business every few years and I try to make sure 4 or 5 people besides myself have the info (since it will be hard to dig up far in the future when my kids are grown, etc.). BTW - I recently saw some marketing from a company on social media that was pitching sending in your kids' tooth-fairy teeth to capture their stem cells

  • Hi,

    Not sure I am too late for the original poster (when's the due date!), but we used Americord and banked the cord blood, cord tissue and placenta. I listened to a podcast with Dr. Rhonda Patrick about banking all 3 and the cost was not hugely different. I think she used a different vendor but my wife did the research with Americord and it was seamless. We just had our boy a week ago, and the banking was straightforward and the Drs and nurses knew how to deal with it. We did a payment plan and is pretty manageable. I would suggest doing your own research but we are pretty happy with our selection. Hope this helps future Bulletproof parents. Let me know if any more questions.
