Umbilical Cord Blood Program

In the past, when a baby was born, the umbilical cord was thrown away. But today, blood for the umbilical cord can be collected after your baby’s birth and donated to a public cord bank to help someone with a life-threatening disease.

Cord blood transplants can help children and adults with life-threatening diseases such as leukemia, lymphoma, or genetic diseases. More than 22,000 patients around the world have received transplants from donations to the public cord blood banks.

We Value Your Privacy

Abrazo Health is proud to partner with the University of Colorado Cord Blood Bank to provide an umbilical cord blood program. Donating cord blood does not change your labor or delivery and donation to a public bank is free – it does not cost you anything. We value your privacy, names of cord blood donors are never shared.
