    Cord Blood Banking Storage- who do we go with?

    Hi
    We are looking at going with the Cord Blood banking option. Can some one recommend a good agency in Hong Kong.

    Hi, it depends on where you are from. If you're not from HK, it might be an idea to choose somewhere that has a storage facility in your home country so when you leave it can be transferred. Many of the companies here have facilities in Sing, UK, Australia etc.

    If you are going to stay in HK, it may be feasible to opt for a facility based in HK as there may be difficulties shipping the cord blood in in times of emergency. I have chosen Healthbaby. Good luck with your choice.

    thank for the replies....we are living in Macau and are not planning to be permanently based here. I am from Mumbai.
    When you say difficulties in shipping the cord blood in time of emergency- what kind of difficulties will one face?
    Can i also have the contact of the person in Healthbaby..

    i used cordblood.com from the US. very reliable, loads of experience. go to their website & register. then, they'll contact you about all the info you need. when i went into labor, my husband called the hotline for their courier service, and the courier service guy was there at the hosiptal waiting to pick up the cordblood to send to the US.

    Hi samiakt,

    I used Cordlife and they were very efficient and good with everything. However, i am not sure about the shipping to Mumbai if there ever is a need, so it's best to check with the company.

    However, if you do decide to go for Cordlife, I can refer you and then we will both get a discount, so PM me if you need the info.

    Good luck!

    Thanks Bubbly
    I am currently doing research on Cordlife...please let me know who your contact is there at Cordlife? Have you got the cells stored in HKG?
