What exactly are stem cells?

Stem cells are the building blocks of life, they create a direct link between your child’s good health at the time they are born and their good health in the future. With the ability to regenerate and protect the body from within, stem cells are able to develop into many different types of blood and tissue cell. Cord blood banking is the process of collecting, processing and storing these cells for use in future stem cell therapies. Currently, stem cells found in cord blood are used in treating over 85 diseases including cancerous blood disorders such as leukaemia, and genetic blood diseases like Fanconi anaemia. They are a perfect match for your baby and have a 25% chance of matching a sibling.

How are stem cells collected?

Cord blood stem cell collection is an incredibly simple process, where these unique cells are collected from umbilical cord once your baby has been safely delivered.

Routinely used to treat over 85 diseases including leukaemia, anaemia and lymphoma, storing your child’s umbilical cord blood and cord tissue, at the time of birth, may be the key to repairing and restoring their future health.
