Since the discovery of the remarkable uses for stem cells the research in this field has been steadily increasing. Stem cells are not only found inside of your babies cord blood but also in every part of your body. Like the cells inside cord blood these stem cells are also very powerful and have shown very promising signs of being used to treat various diseases.

Please join me as I celebrate the power of stem cells on a day completely dedicated to the tremendous properties found inside of them. This Wednesday October 6th is stem cell awareness day! I will hosting a free, interactive Live webinar to discuss all of the benefits of cord blood on AllAboutCordBlood.com at 4pm EST.

The First Three steps to Cord Blood Banking!

baby in hat 

I just wrote this blog for empoweredmommies.com and I wanted to share it with you.

You just found out that you are pregnant, and your wondering: what to do now. You are overwhelmed with excitement and fear all at the same time, you want to make sure and give your child everything it needs and more. These emotions start well  before your baby is even born. You might start by picking out paint colors for the nursery, and picking out names, but there is one important decision you might completely overlook. This decision is weather or not to bank your babies cord blood. Many expecting parents tend to forget about this option all together, or they just don’t understand how to go about making it happen.

 To avoid confusion at an already hectic time I’m going give you THREE easy steps you can take to get the process started.

1.)  Begin by choosing a bank. IMPORTANT: Make sure and do your research, all banks are different.

2.) Once you choose a bank, register with the bank, fill out the paperwork, and get your cord blood kit.

3.) Make your health care facility and or doctor aware of your decision to save the cord, so they will be properly equip for the collection.

Once you start the process you will see how easy it really is. And you will feel much more at ease knowing that you are banking your new bundle of joys cord blood. Cord blood banking is a process that takes very little time and could make the difference between life and death for your family in the future.

TIP: Decide early on in your pregnancy to save the cord so you will not feel rushed at the last minute and you and your doctor will be ready for delivery day!

Any questions about Cord blood feel free to ask!!

Visit to Indiana

 Me with my old babysitter and family friend, ANGIE

Me with my old babysitter and family friend, ANGIE

Last Friday night,  Justin, Chassy (my adorable, yet CRAZY chiuaua) and I arrived in my hometown of Floyds Knobs Indiana.  We left NYC around 7:30 am and 14 hours later we finally made it!  The day of driving started out with getting gas, going to the bank, then heading back to the gas station to get oil and then we were off! Getting out of the city was a bit of a challenge since the GPS system in Justin’s truck kept changing its mind. Less then a half an hour later the GPS decided to give up all together and completely stopped working!

Thank God for Justin’s IPHONE because we used it for directions for a few hours! When we arrived in West Virgina, it happened……the dreaded traffic jam! Luckily we were only stuck in it for an hour. After that it was a smooth but long ride to Indiana! Finally at 9:30 pm we pulled into Mom and Jeff’s driveway! I was beyond excited to see everyone but even more excited to get out of the truck!!

Our trip was filled with LOTS of fun times.

My Favorite Trip HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Small get together with close friends, Stephanie and Zack at Moms house filled with delicious food and contagious laughter.
  • Moms famous grilled Corn……AMAZING!
  • A party thrown by Grandma and Papaw Curry in my honor with the entire Curry Family
  • A reunion of remisnising with my old babysitter, Angie!
  • A visit with Grandma Jacobs and her new puppy Sug ( I thought my dog was crazy!)
  • Yummy dinner at Dad and Cindy’s…..My favorite: Lemon chicken with Dad’s roasted potatoes.

By the time Wednesday rolled around I was stuffed full of amazing food and sad to leave but ready to get back to NYC. Justin and I were pleasantly surprised to find out that Mom was going to ride back with us for some business. Our ride back was much smoother than the ride to Indiana.  I moved to NYC almost exactly one year ago and this was my second visit to Indiana since then. This visit reaffirmed my belief that I have  a supportive family and amazing friends. When I explained to them my goals with raising awareness of cord blood preservation I was so happy to know that they were not only proud of me but that to them I am already changing peoples lives! 

I am looking forward to my next visit, hopefully sooner rather than later! I am also very excited for Dad and Cindy to visit NYC and am already planning what we will do while they are here!
