Baby’s Healthy Future

(NAPSI)—Expectant parents are learning of a special way to protect the health of their new baby and his or her relatives.

It’s done by saving the cord blood, a rich source of unique stem cells that can be collected without invasive procedures or ethical concerns and used in medical treatments for the child, siblings and others if the need arises, explains Rallie McAllister, M.D., co-author of “The Mommy MD Guide to Pregnancy and Birth.”

Cord Blood Registry, the world’s largest and most experienced family cord blood bank, has created a new website,, that offers an interactive experience to help families make informed choices about preserving their newborns’ cord and tissue cells, either through private banking, where cells are collected and stored for a fee for use by your family, or public banking, where the cord blood is stored at no cost to the family and can be used by any patient.
