My husband and I were at a Baby Show recently and walked past a stem cell storage bank display on our way to the popular pram and cot displays. At the time, we didn’t really stop to think about it, however we did make a mental note to have a look into stem cells later on as we weren’t too sure what storing stem cells actually entailed or the process involved.
I already understood the amazing properties found in the placenta and umbilical cord with many mums choosing to freeze dry and consume it for its therapeutic properties. After some research, I discovered that I could go one colossal step further and use the blood in my baby’s umbilical cord to treat my child in future should they become unexpectedly ill.
