Wondering how common this is. Have you donated cord blood or are you planning to?
I planned to with my first but she arrived on a day that they don't do collections and I had placenta complications. I'm really hoping I can donate this time around.
Those that have donated, was there a special reason you donated? I had a very close childhood friend with blood cancer and saw everything he went through. I felt very helpless at the time and I guess I still do. If you have donated, big hugs to you. Thank you for your wonderful gift xx

Not to my knowledge. If I had been asked then I would have no problem donating it.

Pretty sure I was asked to do this and I agreed (I birthed in a major maternity hospital).

As you are already aware, yes we did. I had a planned c-section and was asked on admission.

I can't be sure as I was under GA sorry. But the placenta was given to Dh with Dd so it must've been in the 45mins following delivery.
