Q&A with Mark

What advice would you offer expecting parents considering cord blood banking?

Cord blood banking can save your child’s or a family member’s life. I recommend doing research in your second trimester to find the cord blood bank that you are most comfortable with.

What is a common misconception about the cord blood banking industry?

Some people think the chances of needing a stem cell transplant are very low. The reality is that scientists predict 1-in-3 people will benefit from regenerative medicine therapy using stem cells by age 70 [*].
