  • i was Born in this fimiuliar hospital,however Born 3 Children in The Grace Maturnity in nova Scotia30 years and over and them days was asked to allow Dalhousie University to take my After Birth to Dallasity and do research on it,…iI personally never had a problem as long as t could help others because GOD IS GREAT and WORKS IN MySTERICAL WAYS.,…I say yes help those indeed. Im amazed to hear this but hey,..at least the cord bloods can quickly find a match quicker.AMEN

  • A week ago I just had a baby. Someone from the hospital asked me if I wanted to donate and sure enough I did. I hope that we made a difference.

  • This is such valuable information. I am currently looking into undergoing Stem Cell Therapy for Rheumatic Disease/Rheumatoid Arthritis &’am

  • This is the best presentation I could get on cord blood banking which puts a very fair perspective uninfluenced by private cord blood bankers

  • Yes but…
    Are you allowed to freeze it and store it at home?

    I can’t find anything about this and as far as i can tell all that is needed is it to be frozen

    I’d rather not pay an extra 300-1.2k. (Some include monthly or yearly fees) to save something that kinda belongs to the person in question

    Before anyone potentially jumps at me there’s also hospital fees that are like 12k+
