Stem cell storage

image 506Becoming a new parent can be overwhelming with all the planning for the new arrival as well as getting to know all the baby basics. Pregnancy is the happiest time of your life and expecting parents often do not think about immune disorders or blood diseases when expecting their little one.

For well over a decade it has been possible to store a baby’s umbilical cord stem cells for future medical use. In the past, the umbilical cord blood was discarded as medical waste. Nowadays, families are choosing to store the precious stems cells found in the umbilical cord for private use.

Stem cells are the original “building blocks” of life, the body’s original founder cells that make up the human body and have the ability to become different blood cell types. Blood found in the umbilical cord, at the birth of a baby, contains the purest form of stem cells, as they have not been exposed to any viruses or infections.

Currently there are over 70 blood related diseases and immune disorders being treated using umbilical cord blood stem cells, worldwide, including Leukaemia, Multiple myeloma Anaemia and Thalassemia. Today there are over 4000 clinical trials underway looking at new possibilities of using stem cells for medicinal treatments.

image 505Storing your baby’s cord blood privately ensures that these valuable stem cells are immediately available for your baby and family, should they need them. Your baby’s stem cells will always be a perfect match for them, and there is also a chance they could be a match for a sibling, parent or even a grandparent.

Umbilical cord blood and tissue is easily and painlessly collected after the birth of your baby without any risk to mom or baby. On the day of the birth, parents take their Salveo Collection Kit with them to the hospital to give to their doctor or midwife. All the instructions to sucessfully collect your baby’s umbilical cord blood stem cells and tissue, are already in the kit and only takes your care giver a few minutes to collect.
