Going for cord blood banking is a good decision. There are many such cord blood banks in India and the hospital you have chosen for your delivery will be able to arrange it for you. Cord blood is a rich source of Hematopoietic Stem Cells (HSCs). Cord blood can be used to treat (and often cure) numerous diseases. Research on stem cell therapy has shown that these could be used to treat various life threatening diseases which include all types of cancer and blood disorders like leukaemia, thalessaemia, sickle cell anaemia etc. There is now a long list of hundreds of diseases and conditions that cord blood can be used to treat...most of them at this time use cord blood from a matched blood relative. Consult your Doctor regarding the same.
Hope this helps. Take care.
