Here are My Cord Blood Banking we love doing what we do not because we are part of something potentially huge but because of the countless families we help and the thousands of lives we save. In our company we follow the newest trends in stem cell research and we keep up with the latest cryo preservation technologies.

Our Mission

“What keeps us motivated is the potential hidden in stem cells. These cells are still being slightly overlooked by a lot of medical experts but the future seems brighter than ever now and new ways of treating diseases that were impossible to treat are emerging every single day.”

Cord Blood Banking Company

The last few decades have marked great success in the medical research fields but sadly new diseases spread wider and take more lives each year. This called for a solution which could not only target a specific medical issue but can generally work as a universal healing method. Enter stem cells. Roughly around fifteen years ago stem cells started drawing eyes into them. Until recent times we didn’t take those stem cell theories seriously and therefore not many resources went in this general direction. Nowadays, though, things are drastically different. Not only we know more than ever about these cells but we also have means of extracting, processing, and storing them for further use. This is where our company comes into play and now it’s time to familiarize you with cord blood banking and the role we play in it. 

Before we dive into this endless topic, let us first give you a brief introduction to who we are, what are our goals, and how we aim to change the world one stem cell at a time. 

A Family-Oriented Process

The chambers we have in our facilities are of the highest possible quality and ensure a storing process that will last decades. After all, this is the main goal of storing away stem cells – to last as long as possible. This is crucial since most of the stem cell treated diseases get unlocked in the later stages of our lives and your kid’s cells might come in handy even 30-40 years after their storing process. This is why investing in such a feature can prove life-changing for many people. 

Even if your family never needs those stem cells, others might and this is our network of clinics and facilities is always ready to provide good matching cells for the people in need.

Our Two Main Goals

Why Should You Consider Cord Blood Banking

In My Cord Blood Banking we have set two main priorities that rise above all others. Firstly, we want to ensure a better and healthier life for as many families as we can. We do that by offering special family packages and working with pediatricians and OG doctors from all over the US. Furthermore, we have direct lines connecting us with almost all fertility clinics. This means that most places now can guide new couples towards storing their baby’s umbilical blood.

Storing stem cells isn’t a stricly individually beneficial process. Your baby usually matches very highly with all the close relatives meaning that whatever happens your close family members will have a great insurance policy against many degenerative diseases. Stem cell transplants can be costly and this is why having your own supply is always a great investment, especially when you consider that it can be used multiple times with multiple recipients.  

If you store more than just one batch of stem cells, for example from all your kids, you will create a wider HLA combination pool. This will almost guarantee a near perfect match for you, your loved one and the rest of the family tree.

Our second main priority is to keep investing in stem cell research. Even though it is still a controversial topic, there are many federal projects involving such research investments. The US government has made it clear that it backs up stem cells fully, and we are standing by that choice too. We try to help as many research teams as we can, and we constantly expand our staff’s training and knowledge on the matter. This ensures the highest possible quality levels when it comes to extracting, processing, and storing your baby’s umbilical blood. 

Before we go deeper into the whole process itself, let’s discuss stem cells in general and what exactly their role is in the modern medicine. 

The Mother Of All Cells

Baby’s Cord Blood

Today most people know what stem cells are, or at least what they do in general. That wasn’t the case 10 years ago, though. Now, society is far more aware of them and this causes a larger amount of funds to flow towards the ultimate understanding of this peculiar cell type. Basically, as we like to say, these cells are the parent-cells for all our body’s parts. You cannot think of a tissue, organ or liquid in our body that doesn’t involve stem cells in a way. All our skin, our internal organs, the neural pathways and the brain are created by constantly multiplying and differentiating stem cells. They are found in three places in our bodies: the blood, the bone marrow (red one), and the baby’s umbilical cord (along with the placenta). Those are the places which need the highest amount of cell/tissue creation. 

The sole purpose of a single stem cell is to do two things:

  • Create a more advanced and specialized tissue cell 
  • Multiply itself to keep the stem cell count constant

Those two roles are equally active and are synchronized well enough for our body to never lose or even reduce its stem cell count. Of course, in cases of major tissue damage (such as liver failure, strokes, burnt skin, big wounds or blood loss) stem cells drastically drop in their numbers due to the high demand for tissue repairing in the body. 

Since we already know where they are and what they do, all that is left is to figure out an adequate way of extracting them and making them work for our benefit. This is where most of the research on these cells is focused. We already know that the most active and potent stem cells are the ones in the placenta and umbilical blood and we already know how to extract them, so all there is left is to keep looking for conditions we can apply them to. 

Degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, as well as some Immune disorders are, in a way, damaged tissues in our body. By transplanting stem cells into the patient and by modifying those stem cells so that they target these specific tissues, we can make them repair whats damaged and reverse the disease effect. 

In the case of immunotherapies with stem cells, the body is first nuked with radiation in order to completely wipe its already existing and weak immune system and then stem cells are injected. They basically restart the immune system repairing everything in their way. People who undergo stem cell transplants immediately feel better and in a few weeks period they can get back to their normal lives. 

The transplantation process itself is a highly complex procedure. In its core is the stem cell matching process. Generally speaking, the higher the match-rate between the donor and the recipient, the higher the success rate will be. This is why family members and close relatives can give stem cells to one another with a fairly higher success rate than a non-relative transplant. Still, there can be perfect matches between total strangers as well but that is a rare case and usually takes months. 

The outcome of this procedure can basically be narrowed down to two things – GVHD and no effect taking place. The Graft vs. Host Disease (GVHD) is a well-known complication in which the recipient’s body either rejects or attacks the transplanted stem cells. If it happens on a large scale, it might lead to serious issues or even death. The whole process of transplanting isn’t exactly crystal clear yet and doctors still aren’t really sure why sometimes this procedure does nothing to the patient’s body.

The Cost Of Happiness

Our prices are directly representing what we stand behind as a company and this is why we are offering packages that are better priced than any of our competitors. We try to keep a good balance between investing and sustaining our current families and this is why our monthly or yearly fees can be considered symbolic. 

This long-term investment cannot really have a price tag since even if it saves one life during the storing course, it will be worth anything that has been spent on it. 

To get a personal payments plan call us and book an appointment with one of our specialists. They will give you a call back and will discuss everything you need to know about our procedures. If you want to book a meeting in person, request it during the appointment call. 

The Procedure Itself

There are four steps that are involved in the storing of cord blood. Those are:

  • Preparing the documentation
  • Extracting the cord blood and transporting it
  • Processing it in our facilities
  • Storing it in cryo chambers

Your family is involved in just the first step of the process. A few months before your wife gives birth you will be given a few documents and informational guides to read and fill out. Then, upon finalizing this first step we will either send or give you in person a package of things you will need to give your doctor during childbirth. When the baby is born, the doctor (or our team which has been called on sight) will carefully extract the blood from the umbilical cord and the placenta into two 100 milliliter flasks). This process bears no pain neither for you or your baby. After its done these flasks are transported to our facility. 

There, our team of bioengineers will process the blood so that all the blood elements are cleared away and all that is left is plasma and stem cells. This final stem-solution, as we like to call it, is then put into our cryopreservation chambers where the sub-zero temperatures are low enough to keep the flask cryogenically frozen theoretically forever. We end the procedure by giving you a confirmation call, and from then onwards you don’t have to do anything but enjoy your new worry-free life. 

In our world, the words of our customers mean everything and are a direct reflection of the way we treat the families who have invested in us. Take a look at what some of them had to say:

Our Clients’ Testimonials

Uses of Stem Cells

We have three kids and all of them have their blood stem cells stored with the guys from My Cord Blood Banking. They offered us a family package we couldn’t refuse since it offered a greater discount for every other child. Now, we are basically paying pennies and have three banks of stem cells stored for us and our relatives. Cannot recommend this service enough. 

The Richardsons 

Seattle, WA

Luckily, until now nothing has happened but we had the chance to help a lady from Wyoming with our baby’s stem cells. She healed up completely from her condition. Even if our family might never need this, others might and this is why everybody should store they kid’s umbilical blood! Also thanks to the amazing staff that keeps giving us all the answers we need every time we call! 

Lu Fitzgerald

Fargo, ND

My father had Alzheimer’s for more than 5 years now and when I gave birth to Duncan i stored away his stem cells. Last year, our physician told us about this experimental treatment that reversed some of the disease effects. A year later, my father is feeling much better and his symptoms are far easier to handle. Cannot thank this cord blood banking facility enough!
