About Cord Blood Banking

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Dad Central for the Cord Blood Registry. I received promotional item to thank me for my participation.

I am the father to a twenty-one year old, a ten year old and a seven year old. In two decades of parenting, a lot has changed. I know that there are people that do not believe that parenting has changed over the millenniums but I disagree. Twenty years ago, I did not need to think about tablet usage, cyber stalkers, or the appropriateness of texts.

Hearing Loss Trial

When my oldest was a baby, the idea of using stem cell technology was the stuff of science fiction. By time the next child came around, eleven years later, storing umbilical blood was one of the million and two questions that we were asked. For me, everything about pregnancy was overwhelming. Lee was terrified at one point and in pain at others. Since we were older, also known as advanced maternal age, there were a whole other layer of tests that needed to be done. The bottom line is that the doctor was totally in control and needed to tell me what to do for me to say yes.

When I was offered the choice, I did not take it mainly because I had no idea what we were talking about. Also, it was ungodly expensive, which did not work well for a dad with a baby on the way. Now there is a lot more information and it is much more affordable because they have set it up to do payment plans, financing, and shared banking.

I do regret not being able to sign up the kids for this. In the last twenty-five years, they have used stem cells to treat nearly 80 diseases, including new clinical trials to treat hearing loss. If I had to do it again, I would definitely consider having my children’s stem cells stored. For any of you that are thinking about this, you can get a $200 off coupon.
