The process is very intense, so it helped to feel supported by most of the people I spoke with. There is genuine care and concern for their clients, and it shows. It really makes the entire process much easier, and I think the positive atmosphere improved my odds. I know they take care of any samples and they use only one courier service, so there is no need to worry about mishandling or samples getting lost in transit because of a transfer from one delivery service or courier to another. It is safe. The value of the service they provide is priceless. It saves us from so many worries in the future and the service could also be more helpful than we know. New research may lead to many more benefits of core blood banking. They have the lowest prices of the known providers of core blood banking, and the level of service exceeds that of any competitors in my opinion. I am so thankful to have found them.
They hold it for my sister and I just organized it for her while she was out of commission after her second kid. They seem to be the most helpful. They are holding cord blood for my sister just in case something ever goes wrong and they are holding it beautifully and give update occasionally for peace of mind. If you are looking for a relatively inexpensive way to store cord blood, I would recommend these guys because the service is well value for the pricing. Solid payment options, which make it very easy to handle things. It was a life save in regards to this because my sister really wanted to do this but was on a pretty tight budget.
