Spinoff: Did you save your kids cord blood?

The thread about the "skin gun" and stem cell possibilities made me wonder how many parents saved thier kids cord blood since it contains stem cells. If you don't have kids yet, will you save their cord blood now that the promise of stem cell research is being realized? If no on either account, why not?

Yes we did from our youngest.

We thought that with the way technology had progressed we.may have a chance to help our older disabled daughter down the line. Our family doctor actually advised us to.

It was pretty damned expensive, so we decided against it. We did donate it, however, which is free.

This though we didn't donate it either. It wasn't something that was encouraged or discouraged though, we would have had to ask about it to my knowledge.

My kids were born from the early 70's to the early 80's (5 of them). Back then the cords weren't anything special so we just threw them in the stew pot along with the placenta. (Needed garlic though)

surprised so many have done it considering the expense. We looked at it, but decided we couldn't justify the cost.

I received your rep comment Fat Elvis and there are many needs for the Gaz option in this poll, and every poll on Chiefsplanet. Allow me to demonstrate applicable Gaz option scenarios:

1. There was a mix up, we froze the baby and kept the cord. My wife is heavily medicated in the corner trying to breast feed a severed umbilical cord as I type.

2. The mere mention of the words "umbilical cord" trigger my gag reflex so I disassociated myself from the decision.

3. My wife and child suffered from "Single Umbilical Artery". Thank you for making me re-live the memories Fat Elvis. If anyone is looking for me I'll be shooting heroin in my bedroom dulling the pain.

Need I go on?

We all make mistakes, we just ask that you learn from this one Fat E.
