requ Why Bank Cord Blood? - New England Cord Blood Bank®

It’s About Peace of Mind

Cord blood banking is the simple process of safely and securely storing the blood within your child’s umbilical cord, as well as the tissue from the cord itself. A life-giving opportunity that happens only at the time of a birth, it offers a powerful medical resource in fighting devastating chronic and acute diseases. Banking your baby’s stem cells offers a unique opportunity to provide protection and security for your family.

By choosing to bank your baby’s cord blood and tissue with NECBB, you will preserve your family’s chance to potentially use it as a part of a treatment therapy for over eighty diseases, including various cancers, genetic diseases, blood disorders, and immune system deficiencies.


Here are a few key reasons why so many parents are now choosing to bank their child’s cord blood and cord tissue:

  • Saving these stem cells offers the potential to save your baby’s or another family member’s life
  • Banking is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity available immediately after birth
  • The cord blood and cord tissue collection process is simple and painless to the baby and mother
  • 30%-70% of people who need bone marrow transplants cannot find a match, whereas banking your baby’s stem cells improves the odds of having a proper match for your baby or another family member
  • Medical advances are allowing stem cells to treat even more diseases and be used in more transplant cases than current medical practices
Treatment with Cord Blood Stem Cells

Stem cells are at the forefront of one of the most fascinating and revolutionary areas of biology today. Doctors recognize that stem cells can help treat numerous diseases by generating healthy new cells and tissue. There are a wide range of diseases that are treatable with cord blood, including stem cell disorders, acute and chronic forms of leukemia, myeloproliferative disorders, and many more. In addition to the host of conditions that can now be treated, it’s the potential of cord blood that holds the most excitement as research continues to uncover new possibilities. The efficacy of treating disease with cord blood stem cells is real. Beyond their potential to grow and rejuvenate specific cells or tissues, which can ultimately be used to treat a host of diseases, cord blood stem cells are currently being used to treat more than eighty acute and chronic diseases today.

After missing the opportunity to bank with our first son, my wife and I did the research and compared ALL cord blood banks for our future children.  We initially liked NECBB because of the local presence and quick response with information, compared to other blood banks in the market, but as we continued our research, we found your website informative, your staff knowledgeable, professional and helpful. After such a good experience with our second son’s cord blood, there was no question about banking with NECBB again for our baby girl.    We believe that word of mouth speaks volumes and will continue to recommended NECBB to all our friends with expanding families..
