Expectant parents are faced with an overwhelming number of important decisions before their baby is even born. One of the most important, life-altering decisions a new parent can make is whether or not to bank their baby’s cord blood, or donate it to help others. Cord blood is currently being used to treat over 80 diseases, and research has shown even more potential. Tragically, in the United States 97% of cord blood is discarded as medical waste because of lack of education and awareness about cord blood.
Save the Cord Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, is dedicated to making this important decision as simple as possible for parents by providing unbiased educational information regarding cord blood preservation and its life-saving qualities.
