YOUR BABY’S UMBILICAL CORD
The umbilical cord that forms the bond between the mother and the baby inside the womb is the richest source of lifesaving stem cells. There is every reason to preserve the umbilical cord blood and the tissue at the time of birth.
THE UMBILICAL CORD BLOOD: A LIFESAVER FOR A LIFETIME
Stem cells in general have revolutionized and are continuing to change the practice of medicine. Luckily these stem cells found all over our body and more particularly concentrated in the bone marrow that can be called upon at any time to help in treatment. However the exciting discovery by scientists is that the umbilical cord, which connects the mother and baby for 9 months in the womb, is one of the most preferred sources of these precious stem cells.

STEM CELLS AND REGENERATIVE MEDICINE
Regenerative medicine is a field of medical research developing treatments to repair or re-grow specific tissue in the body. Because a person’s own (autologous) amniotic stem cells can be safely infused back into that individual without being rejected by the body’s immune system – and because they have unique characteristics compared to other sources of stem cells – they are an increasing focus of regenerative medicine research. Research in this area has the potential to revolutionize medicine. It is advancing so rapidly that it is even difficult for medical professionals to supply the most up-to-date information for their patients. Possible future uses in the field of regenerative medicine include repairing heart tissue, birth defects, and other damaged tissues.
