Donating Cord Blood??

Hello Everyone,

I was curious to see if there was any mother's out there that went ahead and donated their baby's cord blood?

I was looking into banking it last year before I had my daughter. That was crazy expensive though. $2500 the first year and $1000 every year after.

The other day I saw they now started a program that lets you donate the cord. I was wodering if anyone has done this?

When my oldest was born this wasn't an option. It wasn't available in the area my youngest was born. We donated our middle child's cord blood and it went to a mother of 3 in her early 30's. I don't regret doing it and I'm sure the person who received it is glad we did.
