Cord Blood

Banking your cord blood is always a good idea if you can afford to do so. But because the chances of ever actually needing it for your child are slim, the American Academy of Pediatrics doesn't recommend it on a routine basis. That being said, did you know you can donate it, free of charge, and it just might save someone's life? Cord blood is rich in stem cells and can be used to treat lymphoma, leukemia, and bone-marrow cancer among other diseases.
