Re: is anyone here banking their baby's cordblood?
We seriously considered it with ds, but then I consulted with our pediatrician and our midwife and decided not to.
The chances that you will ever use it are very slim (unless you have a family history of the illness they list). However, if we had a lot of disposable income, I still would have done it. But for us, it was too expensive to justify paying for storage since we have NO family history of any of the types of diseases. I say if you can afford it, go for it! What can it hurt?
