    When we decided to store the cordblood, my doc said that the red cross in HK is never coming to collect the cordblood - they are not trained and prepared (shortage of people). Furthermore you have no guarantee that you get this for your baby when you need it. It will be donated for anyone in need.
    We found it difficult too. We did choose cordlife, they gave us a good impression.

    Cord Blood Banking: Have You Done It?

    Hello,

    I am writing an article about cord-blood banking and am curious if anyone who has done it would be willing to talk to me about it. Please let me know!

    Best,
    Amy

    Healthbaby is a TW company, found in HK for 1-2 years
    whereas for the singaporian company, Cordlife, it's around 3 years~
    From what I know, Cryolife is a HK based company, newly accreditated by AABB.

    If anyone wants to use Cordlife, I can refer you and both of us will get a discount. Send me a message if you are interested.

    I have heard from other expecting parents that the father may be able to collect the cord blood after delivery in a public hospital (specifically QMH). Smart cells apparently provides training to the father/couple on how to do this. Obviously the couple would have to be quite firm at the time of delivery about getting the opportunity to do this.

    Question Thinking of going with Smart Cells

    Hi,

    Has anyone signed with Smart Cells? Do they offer an interest free credit option? Does it cost anthing to use the cord blood if needed? Do they also offer a discount if refered by parents who have already signed with them?

    My husband will have to collect the placenta, so i guess i'll have to go to the hospital to request this be carried out at the time of my baby's birth.

    I'll be delivering at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Shatin. Has anyone already collected the sample at this hospital?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    i stored mine with cordlife. They have offices around the world and has referral fee as well. Not the cheapest but price is not very different from competitors.
