Hi Guys

So fetal specialist said he doesnt really think its necc unless you have a history of leukemia etc etc. where stem cells are needed.
He said most dont ever get used. and we rather invest the money in a college fund..

so not sure now on what to do...

Stem Cell storage is going to get even bigger, when we went to the Mamamagic show and Baba Indaba shows the information we received was amazing only problem is, here in SA there are not a lot of doctors that can actually do the procedure if required, they all store the cells but you would have to go overseas if you require any procedure to be done.

I really think its important to do as much research, we actually were very interested as my husbands cousin was in a car accident and is paralysed, my childs cells wouldnt be able to be used on her nerves as its too far within the family tree bloodline however the information we got at the one company was that they have now found stem cells in your stomach fat, if I can recall, so her brother could actually help with just a few fat cells, imagine that with technology nowadays its amazing what the future holds.

Cryo-Save or Netcells? Anyone done this before, my baby is due in May and my hubby wants to go with Cryo-Save. No problem with that, I just have not had the time to research Netcells really?

Hi Ladies

So i had a chat to a family member who's an ophthamologist. I asked him about the stem cell storage and he said if affordable for us then there should be no question about it. he said on a daily basis there is research breakthroughs and research taking place about stem cell and in the near future it will be HUGE and life saving...

He told me about leukemia as an eg and i really think that if it is affordable then everyone who can should try to do it!!

also ladies, consider donating your placenta to them because it can save up to 60 peoples eyes in surgery etc. they use it for various treatments ...
