2) Would transfusing stem cells in the first child be permitted irrespective of the blood group of new born (Is it allowable even if both children have different blood group)
3) Is it 100% safe or has a side effect;
4) Does it matter which stem cell preservation company we use or we should consult Doctors (the company with history would be beneficial);
5) Any Best company that is suggestive;
