Cord Blood Banking Raffle Winner and I

Cord Blood Banking Raffle Winner and I

I know that I have discussed the price involved in cord blood banking numerous times before. After giving my speech at the Pregnant New Yorker event earlier this week it occurred to me that price is still the number question people have about cord blood banking. It is very misunderstood so many people are scared away immediately because they think they can’t afford it.  My hope is to encourage you to educate yourself about your choices. Prices range from bank to bank and most all of them offer several payment options.  CorCell cord blood bank even has partnerships with nine different insurance companies that will work with you  to help lower your costs.

It is all about priorities. I am sure that when you are starting a family or having children saving for their future is one of your greatest concerns. Have you thought about what you would do god forbid someone in your family becomes ill? The same way you prepare for financial unknowns you can prepare for medical crisis’s by saving your baby’s cord blood.

If price is what is holding you back from making this decision; opt to bank your baby’s cord blood vs:

  • Going to Starbucks daily
  • Television Cable
  • Dinning out
  • Vacationing

It is small changes like this  that could help you save money to bank your baby’s cord blood.

Most people believe that cord blood banking is thousands of dollars per year and that is untrue. You will pay one larger sum up front to the bank for enrollment /processing/ storage. After that (depending upon what payment option you use) you will pay close to $100 a year or close to $30 a month. It is really a small price to pay to help ensure your families healthy future. I hope that this helps clear things up and that you will ask questions and do research to find the best bank for your family.
