Are you a parent to be, or already have children and are planning a new addition to the family? Have you or any love one’s ever heard of Cord Blood Banking? I personally have not. Now I’m a 20 year old girl who still has a while before planning a family, but learning about Cord Blood Banking has really helped me worry less about what I can do if my baby(s) are born with any kind of diseases or even organ failure that may harm them in the future or could happen while still in the womb.
What is Cord Blood Banking you ask; It gives you (the parent(s)) to save the stem cells from the umbilical cord from your child directly after birth. Why? you may ask, well it can help your child later in the future or even present with any deceases that can be deadly to your child. The stem cell implants have been proven to help about 80 plus different deceases. The Cord Blood Bank is a shorter way of using the placenta for things like the eyes, the brain, private parts, etc. With a unique way to replace or to even regrow organs that offers opportunities for the treatment of immune disorders and self-repair. So In shorter terms, it can play a role in helping the body repair it’s organs, organ failure, or even deceases before or after birth; it also helps with bone marrow.
Many studies show on the top medical journals that transplanting more of these are multipotent which is cells that can develop into more than one cell type, but are more limited than pluripotent cells ( capable of giving rise to several different cell types) and can give rise to all cell types in blood. CD34+ stem cells (are most known for its expression on stem cells found in bone marrow and cord blood) significantly improves success and survival rates in infants and babies. So if you are thinking maybe this will be my only or last child you can also banking the entire placenta offers potential for new treatments in immune disorders, wound healing, organ transplant and even growth. Now this isn’t for every baby out there, but for those who know their baby will be born with a decease or when they are born and you find out their liver or some kind of organ is failing, so ask about Cord Blood Banking to your doctor today.
