If stem cells could save your child’s life,
shouldn’t you know more?
Once a newborn’s umbilical cord has been cut, the remaining blood in the cord and a piece of the umbilical cord are collected.
As the process takes place after the umbilical cord has been cut, it is RISK-FREE, FAST and PAINLESS for both mom and baby.
