I am pregnant, this is my first baby. I am seeeing a gynecologist. Last week i went for my routine check up. My gynecologist explined me that there is facility in their hospital that for storing of cord bleed during the delivery which can be later used for the child if it has any disease. I was totally surprised, is it possible to store this blood till my child becomes big ? Can this blood be used to treat the disease in the child ?
