We've gone with cellcare as they are in Melb and we are Adelaide. Pack is being delivered sometime today. My OB has been notified aswell that we are doing both the cord blood and tissue storage. Also doing it as a payment plan over 24months it works out a little bit more well $400 but I don't want to outlay $5550 when I'm on leave and DH is also self employed
