Stem cells extracted from cord blood are used efficiently in the treatment of blood-related conditions such as Thalassemia, Leukemia etc. I had taken presentation from LifeCell and they have given lot of information about how does this work, where is it preserved, the conditions etc.

Stem cells are building blocks of our body, a unique nature's gift that can treat so many diseases. They are forecasted to be the future of medicine. So it is wise to collect and preserve your baby's stem cells at birth. Now with stem cell banks like LifeCell coming up with community banking not just your baby the entire family can enjoy the protection of stem cells. You can call Lifecell they will tell you in details. Just last month I preserved my baby's stem cells with them.

When i chose the stem cell company at that time Life cell was the best one as compared with other companies now as it almosy 3 years, and rules regulation offers/discounts facility accreditation changes. So try comparing all the companies,and if you want to opt for lifecell then tell me/or any of your other friend who have opted for life cell,we can give a referal code where even u will get a discount and even we get a freebie from the company

Even fathers can share their knowledge :p There are numerous disease where stem cells play very vital role in curing the disease. Apart from the child they can even be used to cure diseases of their own siblings& Parents for sure. Some times even the grand parents,Uncle & Aunt maternal uncle,maternal aunt can be benifited from the cells preserved of the birth child(Now in this case the cell need to match with the respective person,whereas in own siblings & parents this cells match,If am not wrong if the cells match 80 % then they can be used to cure the disease) Apart from preserving the cells the company even provide various kind of insurance to treat the disease. There are many companies now a days who do stem cell preservation. My advice to all the parents if they can bare with the expense (approx 60 thousand 2 years back) then they should for sure go for it.

Hi Tina, in this process your umbilical cords will be preserved and in future if your baby's diseases will be cured by using that. Fellow moms kindly share your experience.
