    cord blood

    hi Lieny,

    i won't consider that simply b/c we don't see a need for tat. but it also depends the health traits and history from both sides of your families...

    cheers,
    Florence

    I am also looking into cord blood banking.. spoke to my dr and he suggested smart cells. www.smartcells.com. They charge HK$28,000 for 25 years. I looked at a few local one but i am thinking of going with this one.

    This is the info they gave me.

    Our Hong Kong package fee is HK$28,000 and includes the following:-


    Cord blood collection kit & normal courier service charge from HK to UK. (There will be an additional courier surcharge for services during the UK long public holidays, i.e. Easter and Christmas.)
    Pre-storage processing of the cord blood sample.
    25 years of storage
    Complimentary pre-birth maternal blood test at our designated lab in HK. (This is a mandatory test as required by the Regulation; and has to be done between period of 30 days before the birth or up to 7 days after the birth.)
    Complimentary maternal blood test after 6 months of birth at our designated lab in HK. (This is also a mandatory test as required by the Regulation)
    Retrieval cost – should you need the stem cells for treatment purposes, we will get them to you free of charge wherever, in the World, you may need them.


    The payment schedule:-


    HK$8,000.00 Initial payment (Non-refundable)

    HK$20,00.00 Bal. to be paid upon confirmation of successful storage

    cxflygirl - I was a bit worried that storage is all the way in UK..for Smartcells..so didn't talk to them. What made you pick them over the rest?

    I did talk to Cryolife & Healthy Baby..by my friend highly recommends Cord Life, so I am biased towards them now...
    So they have this seminar this Friday nite, which I plan to go (it is in Cantonese) where they will give us a tour to their labs and everything. Theirs is about HK28K, and givign out $2000 promotions.. but the storage is only for 18 years..

    Do you know what is the expiry date for the cord blood?
