So my wife and I are expecting in 7 weeks or so and we have decided to store cord blood and tissue for 25 yrs with CellCare.
Nothing much to report yet but I will update here as we progress to let you all know what the experience is like. As for cost it was a $250 deposit and around $230 per month for 2 years then nothing. This comes in around $5600 after a referral discount of $300. They store the blood + tissue for 25 yrs and give you 1 or 2 months to decide what to do at the end of that period.
We should be receiving the pack to sit in the car in the next few days. When my wife goes into labour we take the kit up with us and providing there are no complications the obgyn will harvest the blood and cord and store them in the cooler in pre labled medical storage bags and we call a courier to collect it.
So at this point that's all I really know, i'll report back when our new addition is delivered!
