Give Today, and Save a Life Tomorrow
Having a child is a very special time in a woman’s life, filled with many new and exciting decisions to be made. We’re glad that one of those decisions you’re considering is cord blood banking for your baby. Cord blood banking offers the gift of life for another child or maybe even an adult.
Cord blood is often discarded as medical waste after the birth of your baby, but by donating, it can make a difference in the lives of others. There are currently dozens of diseases for which cord blood cells are being used in treatment.
We provide a few options for what to do with your cord blood after the birth of your new family member. It can be donated to a public bank for storage and transplanted into any patient that is a match. Donations to research efforts are also available, where it will be used to look for ways to improve the transplant process and find new uses for cord blood cells. You also have the option to privately store the cord blood for use by your own family. You can find out more on our About Cord Blood page.
The Cord Blood Bank of Arkansas is an innovator in this industry and the first of its kind in Arkansas. We would be honored to be a part of the miracle of birth you will soon experience by helping you make a difference in the lives of others.
If you have any questions, please contact us and we will be happy to provide you with more information.
