Cord Blood Donation

One more thing that Mother can offer

The cord blood is collected after the baby's birth, following the cutting of the cord and before the placenta is delivered. It is done simply by collecting the remaining blood in the umbilical cord and placenta using a bag with a tube and needle. There is no risk for the baby nor for the mother.

We wish everyone could participate, but we don't want you to travel a long distance for this purpose. Please consider it if you reside nearby.

Cord blood cannot be donated when

  • the mother is having a multiple birth.
  • the mother has an autoimmune disease, infection, or complicated pregnancy.
  • the mother or father or a close relative has an inheritable haematological disease.

(Please ask for more information as there are other instances when deferral is necessary.)



Cord blood cannot be collected when

the baby is born prematurely, the delivery of the placenta is too fast and in some other cases, even though a consent for donation has been given.

Cord blood cannot be preserved when

the amount of collected blood is too small, we cannot begin the processing within 24 hours, or the test results show it to be unsuitable for transplantation.


We take a blood sample of about 7mL from the mother after the birth.
Another questionnaire is sent to ask about the health of the baby and the mother about six months after the baby's birth. When all the test results are satisfactory the cord blood is registered in the cord blood bank.

We sincerely thank you for your participation!
