EDUCATION PARTNERS

At Cord For Life®, we believe in helping parents understand their cord blood banking options.

And 28 states agree, having passed legislation that supports the importance of cord blood banking education.

We partner with non-profits whose mission is to support cord blood education and informed choices. We encourage you to learn more about your options to donate or privately bank your newborn’s cord blood stem cells.
