Cord Blood Awareness Month

July is Cord Blood Awareness Month! Cord blood refers to the blood in the placenta and attached umbilical cord that can be collected afterbirth. 

Cord blood has been used for therapeutic use in blood, immune system, and metabolic disorders as an alternative for bone marrow. Cord blood contains stem cells coming from the newborn.
