  • Do you plan to store your baby's cord blood? What facility are you going with?

  • We donated ours. Our hosital is one of the few where you can donate. We hadn't planned on it because we wanted to have the cord stop pulsing before it was cut. The lady from the Red Cross said that was fine. She was really irritating though because she was trying to talk to me during contractions. My dh was trying to get her to shut up without sucess. I think they must have really wanted our blood because she was willing to set things up so late. They probably heard there was a mom with O- blood and they wanted it. They're always wanting me to give blood for that reason.

  • We're still trying to make a decision on this.... the packet of info from ViaCord is on the way. But I honestly think that we'll end up donating it. I'm also O Negative....and they are always trying to get me to donate blood but the problem with that is that I have iron-deficiency anemia....so it's a no go.

  • For our first son we have the cord blood stored with Cryocell. Not sure yet what we want to do with this pregnancy. Still debating the decision.
