There are various nasty illness’s in existence, no one will ever deny that seeing your loved one being ill is an unpleasant experience for anyone to undergo. If it is your Infant the feeling is even worse.
Medicine is always discovering new cures, there are a number of amazing hospitals that concentrate on discovering new therapies for childhood illness. Plenty of the most recent interesting breakthroughs have been in the field of stem cell research. As cord blood banks become more widespread and the cost of using them decline we should see an increase in parents storing the cord blood from their babies umbilical cords for later use.
Keeping your newborn son or daughters stem cell blood may not be your primary thought when you find out you are expecting but if you do not think about it ahead of childbirth it will be too late. Stem cells are not something you can immediately get online, stem cells are a direct product of creation and you have to plan ahead if doctors are going to use them to help your children.
At this point in time stem cells are barely used in the treatment of just a few illness but as technology improves and more and more research is under taken the amount will increase.
Many people will tell you that it is useless to pay for a cord blood bank as the odds that you will ever need the blood are little. The response to that is that I purchase life insurance and hope to never have to use it, storing of stem cells is no different. You are getting cover for your children’s future health. Stem cells are not used for helping your babies ear ache or the runny nose they get every year, they are used for far more grave conditions. While you may trust that you never must call up the cord blood bank and tell them you need to use the stored blood, but if you do need to you will be glad you never listened to the naysayers.
