This Wednesday several Mom bloggers and myself will be spending the day tweeting and chatting about the benefits of cord blood banking. We want to hear your stories! My “shift” is from 1 – 2pm. Please join in the twitter discussion with @momangeles. The twitter handle is #cbaware.

A Little About Cord Blood Banking
(Thanks Desiree Eaglin for below info…)
What is Cord Blood Banking? Immediately after birth and the umbilical cord has been cut, the remaining blood is collected. The entire procedure is painless and takes less than 5 minutes to complete. The collected blood is then sent to the laboratory and frozen in cryogenic storage tanks for long-term preservation.
What is Cord Tissue Banking? Cord Tissue collection is taken immediately after the cord blood has been collected. A piece of the umbilical cord (approximately 4 to 8 inch segment) is cut and preserved in the CBR CordCup® container. Cord Tissue research is still in its early stages and by saving large pieces of the umbilical cord tissue you will be insuring the availability of using the best technology in the future.
