Lifebank USA (and carseat giveaway!)
Recently, Lifebank USA invited me to share more information about umbilical cord banking with my readers. I knew my blog was a great fit because we're moms. We want what is best for our families and we will do anything to protect our kids.
When we're pregnant, it's easy to protect our unborn child. Our babies are snuggled safe in the womb. After we give birth, the world takes over. Unfortunately, the world is a scary and unpredictable place.
With every pregnancy I strongly considered saving and banking my baby's umbilical cord blood. I read the pamphlets and priced out different companies. The benefits of cord blood have been proven over and over again, and any parent would find reassurance in knowing they had cord blood banked in case of an accident or sudden illness.
Banking cord blood is the ultimate "peace of mind" for any parent.
Lifebank USA is the sole company that offers cord blood, placenta blood and tissue banking in the United States. Stem cell transplants have been used to treat approximately eighty diseases since 1988, and with cord blood banking, you can collect and preserve potentially lifesaving stem cells. These cells can be used to treat your child or another blood relative should an accident or sudden illness strike.
Unfortunately, I never did follow through with the umbilical cord blood banking, and I must admit I regret not taking the opportunity when I had it. I would rest easier at night if I knew I had life saving stem cells stored safely in case my family ever needed them.
Lifebank USA is hosting a fabulous carseat giveaway on Facebook. They are giving away THREE top rated, Britax Marathon 70-G3 Convertible Car Seats in a random drawing. The value of each car seat is $231.99!
