Is anyone considering banking their baby’s umbilical cord blood? I have received what seems like a TON of information in the mail, at doctor’s offices, etc about it, but cant seem to find an answer to the question: is it really worth it?
As a diabetic mom, I cant help but think of the possibilities as far as if my son develops diabetes, or if there is a chance it could be used down the road to treat or cure my own diabetes…I have attempted to research the topic, but am having trouble locating information that seems unbiased and reliable, as so much of it comes from blood banking companies websites.
Anyone else considering banking the cord blood? Would love to hear input/thoughts on the topic!
