Prepare ahead: These services are available in participating hospitals who need to know of your plans before delivery.The cord blood must be taken from the cord/placenta as soon after birth as possible.

You should not: Donating your blood is your gift to others in need, so you shouldn't have to pay for it. Thank you for giving!

Depends on the pgm: Programs where the cord blood is stored under your name for potential future use do require your payment. Some programs collect cord blood like a blood bank for anyone to use in the future as need arise and a match is confirmed.One such program at a local hospital requires no payment from doners.
