“I was so impressed with the entire team and cannot recommend them and the benefits of umbilical stem cell blood bank storage enough. This is potentially life changing for you and your family.” Naomi Isted, Style & Beauty Presenter & Columnist
“The service we received from our phlebotomist was first class, Jo was always at the end of the phone at the crucial build up to Oliver’s arrival and Jo was extremely professional and very caring during the collection of the cells after he’d been born, always there when I needed advice.” Lisa Whitehead
“I have been a paediatric nurse for over 10 years but only recently discovered that I was able to store my children’s stem cells. I missed out on the opportunity with my three daughters so when I fell pregnant with my son I knew it was something we had to do.” Kim Bromwich, Paediatric Surgical Nurse
“Cells4Life’s affordable cord blood banking is second to none. We were able to spread our stem cell banking costs over twelve-months and couldn’t be happier. Our son now has access to his own cord blood and cord tissue if he ever needs it. If we have another child, we’ll be sure to use Cells4Life’s cord blood banking services again.’’ Millie Taylor
