Cell Care - Australia’s Family Cord Bank
Cord blood and cord tissue banking enables you to store your baby’s birth stem cells, so that they are available for possible future medical treatment for his or her lifetime. By storing your baby’s cells, you are ensuring that he or she has a reserve of stem cells for life that are a perfect genetic match. In the past, these cells were routinely discarded as medical waste. Importantly, there is only one opportunity to collect these cells – and that is at the time of birth.
