Moms Reveal The Reasons Behind Their Decision To Bank Their Baby’s Cord Blood With Evercord

 

“My niece had Thalassemia, and I saw the struggle first hand. A few years ago, when I saw the first advertisement for cord blood banking, I instantly thought of her. It was never a question of if, only when. I found out all details in my first trimester and put aside the money needed. My niece, if she was here today, could have benefited from my baby’s cord blood. Maybe someone else will.”

~ Susan, an Evercord Customer

“We are blessed with great health in our family. So, cord blood banking didn’t really figure into our discussions when we were planning a baby. But when I started researching it, it just made so much sense! My husband was not too convinced -  we were struggling a bit financially – but something inside me was so sure that this was essential that I put it in my baby shower registry. Now, I just feel good knowing it’s there.”

Currently, for patients with Thalassemia and Sickle cell Disease, Stem Cell Transplant is the only cure available. The stem cells found in your baby’s umbilical cord  are now replacing bone marrow treatments, as they are more readily available, pose no risk to the donor and have a low rate of viral contamination. In addition, the procedure has a much lower rate of a side effect known as  GvHD (Graft versus Host disease).

 

One of the biggest issues facing patients with life threatening diseases is finding a matching stem cell donor. The great promise of cord blood banking is that it could solve this problem once and for all, as a person’s own stem cells would be stored for future use. Currently, scientists and doctors are performing medical studies and clinical trials, each using umbilical cord stem cells to treat a wide variety of disorders. It is only a matter of time before cord blood could be used to treat illnesses and conditions such as autism, cerebral palsy and even certain cancers.

Just look at the current statistics and you’ll see the promise of cord blood banking:

 

Stem cells from an unrelated donor – success rate less than 30%;

Stem cells from family - success rate 60%;

Stem cell from baby’s own cord blood – 100% successful match.

 

For new mothers, these statistics take on a whole new meaning. The maternal instinct kicks in almost overnight. All parents, regardless of where they come from and what they do, just want one simple thing for their children:for them to grow up happy and healthy!

 

Think of cord blood banking as a special form of health insurance, one that potentially covers conditions that have a history within your family. As a new mother, you want to give your baby every advantage in life, and cord blood banking is one of the most significant ways you can protect the future health of your child.

 

However, Cord Blood banking is not just about protecting your newborn: the protection it provides extends beyond your child to encompass your entire family and sometimes even strangers in need.

 

We know that, as a new mother, you are faced with an overwhelming number of choices, options and decisions. Fortunately, banking your baby’s cord blood with Evercord is an easy decision. It’s a safe, effective and affordable choice that provides peace of mind for you...and for the beautiful new addition to your family.
