Five Reasons to Choose Cord Blood and Cord Tissue Banking With Americord
Women today have more options and information surrounding pregnancy and birth than ever before. Cord blood and cord tissue banking fit into a birthing plan for a myriad of reasons. Here are five reasons to choose to bank your cord blood and cord tissue from your next pregnancy.
Treatment for Genetic Abnormality Diseases
Stem cells from cord blood and tissue can be a used to treat certain genetic abnormality diseases such as sickle cell and cystic fibrosis. When you bank cord blood and tissue, it means that your baby will have stem cells that are a 100% genetic match for them.
An Alternative to Bone Marrow Cultivation
Bone marrow used to be the standard way to cultivate Hematopoietic stem cells. Getting the HSCs from Bone Marrow is a painful and invasive treatment. Instead, banking your baby’s cord blood will provide the same rich HSCs to treat over 80 blood-and- bone-related diseases.
Science is progressing every day when it comes to uncovering the benefits of cultivating Mesenchymal stem cells. MSCs are found in the cord tissue and placenta. These stem cells may be the key to unlock treatments like diabetes, heart disease, liver disease, spinal cord injury and more. This is an exciting time for stem cell research in the least invasive way possible.
There is a high percentage that the stem cells collected from your cord blood and cord tissue will also be matched for your other children should they have one of the 80 diseases currently treated by stem cells. The stem cells can serve as an internal repair system for your children.
Peace of Mind
If you are an older mother or a mother that has a history of children with diseases, banking your child’s cord blood will give you the peace of mind that you are doing everything you can do in your power to provide the best possible health treatments for your child and family.
