    Collecting your baby’s cord blood and cord tissue is a safe and non-invasive process, and will not interfere with your birth plan or your bonding time with your baby.

    safe

    Unique
    Umbilical cord blood stem cells can become almost any cell in the human body. Preserving your baby’s cord blood at birth is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to help them access certain stem cell types that are only found in cord blood.
    safe

    Perfect
    Stem cells are powerful cells that have the natural ability to turn into other types of cells, regenerate, renew, and replace damaged cells with healthy ones. These unique qualities and the fact that your baby’s own umbilical cord stem cells are a perfect biological match make collecting these cells after birth invaluable.
    safe

    Powerful
    Storing stem cells from your baby’s umbilical cord opens up a range of treatment options for more than 80 conditions and are the subject of more than 7,600 clinical trials for various regenerative therapies.

    Cord blood banking preserves powerful stem cells
    Naomi Isted - Style and Beauty Presenter & Columnist

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.”
    Unique stem cells in cord blood
    Kim Bromwich - Paediatric Surgical Nurse & Mum of four
    “I knew it was something we had to do. Leo’s stem cells are now stored and ready should he ever need them. It was reassuring to know that they may even be a match for his big sisters if ever they were ill.”
    Cord blood is a perfect match

    Georgia Woods - Mum of four

    “Cord blood banking is an investment into the future of our new family. Stem cell storage was always part of our long term plan but after completing our research into my own condition and learning what it is that makes cord blood stem cells so special, I knew immediately that we made the right decision. This is all about safeguarding the future of our new family and ensuring that we can all live a normal, happy life. As new stem cell therapies develop, I’m confident that our decision will enable my family and I to make the most of them.”

    Quick questions…

    How is umbilical cord blood collected?
    First, your phlebotomist prepares the area and lays out the equipment in your collection kit. They then clean your baby’s umbilical cord and placenta with sterilising wipes to reduce the risk of contamination.

    The phlebotomist collects the blood by inserting a blood bag needle into the umbilical vein. Once blood ceases to drain, they seal the bag and dispose of the needle.

    The sample is labelled and placed into a protective overwrap. For cord tissue, a long undamaged section of the umbilical cord is selected and cut.

    It is cleaned thoroughly and placed into the tissue pot along with saline solution. The pot is labelled and overwrapped, and both samples are packaged back into your collection kit.

    How is cord blood stored?
    We store cord blood samples across our two UK facilities. In fact, we are the only cord blood bank in the UK to offer dual storage locations.
    Is cord blood banking affordable?

    The cost of cord blood banking does not have to be expensive. Pricing varies according to the process and service you choose. At Cells4Life, we offer a variety of different pricing plans, which start at £1,600.

    How can cord blood be used?

    Today, cord blood can be used to treat more than 80 conditions. In future, it is expected to treat many other diseases and disorders as stem cell technology continues to advance.

    Trials are already underway investigating the application of umbilical cord stem cells as a therapy for neurological conditions such as cerebral palsy, stroke and even autism. Progress has also been made for the treatment of diabetes and heart disease. Preliminary data from these clinical trials suggest that these powerful cells could even one day be used to regrow organs.
