rbhc_77You’ve just taken a pregnancy test and see the two lines on the test that indicate you are with child and will be adding a new precious life to your family.  The moment you see the result, you have a strong desire to protect your unborn child and do what’s best for him or her for the rest of your life!  When I had my boys, I didn’t know as much about Blood Core Banking as I do today.  What do you know about it?

Cord blood is a rich source of viable stem cells which are used in clinical trial tests for advancements in possible treatments of several conditions.  Cord blood stem cells have been used to test potential new treatments for conditions such as Type 1 Diabetes, cerebral palsy, autism, spinal cord injuries – along with dozens of others.

Although cord blood storage is still a relatively new process, families from all walks of life are choosing to use the process as an assurance for a healthy child.  The benefits of cord blood storage are especially important for families that have a heritage of mixed ethnicities.  Unlike bone marrow transplants, cord blood can be a suitable transplant for people of all genetics.  Families with a history of certain conditions also stand to benefit from cord blood storage, and if your doctor knows your family’s history you will likely be encouraged to consider the benefits of cord blood.

For effective storage and development, cord blood stem cells must be banked using a cord blood program such as Insception Lifebank.  The cord blood collection process is painless, poses no risk to you or your baby’s health, and in no way interferes with your baby’s birth.

Insception Lifebank coupons are eligible for all Canadian families interested in cord blood banking. To be eligible for the $100 coupon, you must complete an Insception Lifebank registration and plan to use the cord blood banking program. Are you cord blood ready? Follow this link to the coupon registration form. If you live in the USA, you can also register and Insception Lifebank will contact you back with further information.

I was compensated for this sponsored post made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own. Coupons for this promotion are available to Canadian residents only. American registrations are welcome but unfortunately do not qualify for the coupons.
