Every year, more than 200,000 expecting parents in the United States choose to bank their newborn’s cord blood.
The cord blood banking process occurs after your doctor/midwife has delivered your baby and clamped and cut the umbilical cord. The cord blood is then collected from the section of the umbilical cord that is no longer attached to your baby.
Our direct medical courier will then come to the birthing facility to pick up the cord blood unit and transport it to our laboratory facility where we will do testing, processing and cryogenically freeze the stem cells.
After all test results come back you will receive your MiracleCord Certificate of Storage and detailed lab report. At this point your baby’s cord blood stem cells are safely stored for your family’s future use, should a stem cell transplant be necessary.
