The Process of Gathering the Cord Blood for Storage
The cord blood is collected and processed into the components that are stored as stem cells for future use. This process is done after the baby is delivered and does not interfere with the birth or bonding experience.
The baby is never even aware that it's cord blood is being extracted and saved.
Extraction of cord blood is done after the cord has been removed from the mother so their is no danger to mother or child.
