Donation Process

 
Texas Cord Blood Bank

If you are delivering at one of our participating hospitals, all you need to do is notify your nurse of your wish to donate when you are admitted. All of our kits and paperwork are kept on site for your convenience; no advance preparation is necessary.  

Related Donor Cord Blood Program

Blood from your baby’s cord can be collected after birth and used to treat a biological sibling with a diagnosed disease. A cord blood transplant may, in fact, provide the best hope for treatment. The Related Donor Cord Blood Program offers families this opportunity. There is no charge for collecting and storing the cord blood.

Private Cord Blood Bank

Banking your baby’s cord blood is a personal decision for you and your family. We recommend you seek as much information as possible to make the best choice. For a thorough source of information, visit www.bethematch.org. The GenCure Cord Blood Center offers this service.
