    Store your child's cord blood cells. These days they are storing tissue too. Store that as well. Regarding whom to use, we didn't do any ground work. We got really lucky though. I can vouch for life cell. We used them in India. Recently we needed my son's stem cells for a clinical trial in the US. Lifecell doesn't have the best customer service. We had to jump through hoops to get it shipped but we got it here. The condition was excellent. We were able to use his own cord blood cells and still had left over to store. The facility is genuine and the cells were well stored. I was very frustrated with all the road blocks with regard to getting anything done by them but their storage was perfect.

    Regarding the benefits of cord blood banking, I wish I had my daughter's saved too. I could have used it for my son. The field is rapidly progressing. A lot of ailments are being treated effectively with banked blood cells. If you don't bank it, it's an opportunity lost. From personal experience, bank anything they offer to save. We never know where it can come of help.

    HTH,
    L

    Hi, I have opted for stem cell banking for my child. It does help to fight many illnesses, blood diseases, metabolic or genetic disorders. after exploring many options of private banks, I banked with Cordlife India as I found them to have better technology and better equipped for storage than others. Their online reviews are good too so i went ahead with them, touchwood so far the experience has been good.
