    Has anyone banked cord blood and if so, why did you do it?

    Just wondering - for those out there that considered this option, why did you decide to do it, or why not?

    We did this when our son was born 7 years ago.  We do believe in the power and potential of stem cell research, and hope that we never need to harness it.  But if we do, I feel a little better knowing we have his cord at our fingertips if needed.

      I did the same and completely agree.  Since, my neighbor has gotten leukemia and it is amazing, but stem cells really can be a good thing to have.  You never know!  I wouldn't want to be wishing I did it!
