I was keen to do it, but then i read about the benefits of delayed cord clamping, and did that instead, as it's one or the other.
Good on you for doing it, and hope you can get it sorted.

I looked into this but it wasn't an option at the hospital where I had dd and even if it had been she ended up arriving on a Sunday and I believe most cord banks only operate business hours. We did delayed cord cutting in the end. Given the volume of blood in the cord at birth I think it's great if the blood gets used one way or the other!

I would have liked to and it was an option at the hospital I had DD in but i had her in the middle of the night when there was no collection available so it didn't happen.

I did private cord blood storage so could be garentee for it would be collected. They were awesome and got a great volume and high cell count for mine. Main problem is its most useful for a sibling ( although can be used otherwise) and I doubt I'll have another, but knew as u only get one chance better collect in case. If u do private they come anytime, lucky for them ds behaved and arrived at ec. It was about 2500 inc 20y storage. Or u can do pay over time which was cheaper in short term forget figures....

I'm not interested in storing. If I can't donate this time I'd just delay clamping. I really want the cord blood to go to someone who is in desperate need.
