    Default Cord Blood

    Is anyone going to be keeping the chros blood for their child/ And if so how much does it cost?



    I am just curius about all this and dont know too much about it.


    Also is it true you can donate it?

    So let me get this rigt, it costs alot to keep it for your own child, or you can donate it for someone elses life, for free, or throw it away and save no one!

    Hi Soul,

    I looked into it and the cost was approx. $2200 for the 18 years of storage. Different companies charge different fees and they also have payment plans.

    You can collect the blood and pay to have it stored for 18 years
    You can donate the blood - not sure on any cost for this
    Or you can let your baby have the extra blood at birth.

    I was going to do it untill I read the articles etc. on my thread - now I want my baby to have the extra blood.

    One of the companies in australia is Bio Cell.....[url edited by BellyBelly] They have a lot of information on their site (keeping in mind they are trying to sell you a service) and you can also request extra information from them.

    Hope this helps!
