The collection process starts with registration and a signed Permission to Collect consent form. Donated cord blood is collected immediately after the safe delivery of the baby and placenta/umbilical cord. We do not interfere with the process of labour and delivery.
We encourage you to speak with your physician, midwife or nurse about donating your baby’s cord blood. Ask if they can provide you with information on public cord blood donation during your prenatal visits. Their guidance is important to help you make this important decision. Let them know you are considering donating your baby’s cord blood.
