Thinking About Banking Umbilical Cord

User Profile
I'm considering saving the umbilical cord in order to prevent future illness for my blood line. Has anyone else benefited from this practice? Is it worth the annual cost?

Umbilical cord preservation
Umbilical cord preservation is really a great thing to do for your baby. This will save your baby from any life-threatening disease in future. It is an easy and painless process. The umbilical cord is extracted 5 minutes after the birth of a baby. Though i haven't practiced it, but have read much. One of my friend has done this with Cryobanksindia. You can also get yourself register with this organization.
