Parent's Guide to Cord Blood Foundation Launches Nation's First Searchable Map of U.S. Sites for Donating Umbilical Cord Blood
Date:7/27/2011

BROOKEVILLE, Md., July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Once routinely discarded during the birth process, a newborn's umbilical cord blood contains non-controversial and potentially life-saving stem cells that can be collected and stored for future medical use. But despite their proven uses and vast medical potential, published data shows that three out of four mothers consider themselves only "minimally informed" about cord blood banking.

In connection with Cord Blood Awareness month, Parent's Guide to Cord Blood Foundation, the leading online resource educating parents about their cord blood storage options, has announced the first in a series of new tools and resources being made available to parents on its revised website: the nation's first searchable map of cord blood donation sites throughout the U.S.

"With our new interactive map tool, expectant parents can search geographically for either a public donation program serving hospitals within the U.S., or world-wide they can search for a private bank that serves parents in their country," said Dr. Frances Verter, founder and director of Parent's Guide to Cord Blood Foundation. "Parents have many important decisions to make when preparing for the birth of their newborn, so we're happy to offer a resource where they can quickly find reliable and up-to-date information on the differences between private banking and public donation, and the banks available to them."

Expectant parents who have decided to donate their baby's cord blood can use the U.S. donation map to see if they will deliver their baby at one of about 225 hospitals in the U.S. that is currently collecting cord blood donations, or search for mail-in donation programs, which enable expectant mothers anywhere in the U.S. to register for cord blood donation.

Parents in the U.S. can also learn if their state has legislation in place regarding cord blood educatio
