The benefits of cord blood banking

On your baby’s day of birth, you have the unique opportunity to save your baby’s umbilical cord stem cells. Your growing baby is full of pure, potent stem cells that could be used to treat diseases later on in life.

Currently umbilical cord blood is used in the treatment of over 70 diseases including a wide range of immune system deficiencies and blood disorders (stem cell therapy). The tissue from the umbilical cord contains powerful stem cells that have the potential to repair damaged tissues such as cartilage, bone or muscle. (

Stem cell collection is a very simple, non-invasive and totally painless procedure for you and your baby.

Cryo-Save offers both local and international storage in South Africa and Belgium, for both cord blood and tissue.
