Cord blood is very controversial. It's a little bit of a business. You have to bank your cord blood, you have to pay rent for the cord blood, either monthly or yearly, depending on the organization that you use. And the applications for cord blood are currently many. But in reality, we don't see cord blood used very often, if at all. I think the idea is that you are banking the cord blood in the remote chance that you need it later on and you'll have it, just in case.
So what I tell patients with cord blood is this: if this is something you just heard about or you really weren't worried about it, probably not. If this is something that's going to keep you up at night worrying, "Oh, I just, I wish we had it", and the money isn't an issue, paying rent for the cord blood, or maybe there's a rare genetic illness in the family that just in case you want to have this blood, then it's something to consider. And most of my patients, when I go back and ask them, "Oh, why did you end up doing it?" and I think, you know, in the patients I've asked it's probably even less than five percent end up doing it, they usually tell me it's because, "Hey, why not. At least we have it. The money wasn't an issue and now we don't have to worry about it", is usually the reason I hear. So, it's definitely a personal preference and it's really up to you, but that's the reason why.
