What are your thoughts on it?

We hadn't even considered it because we didn't think our little hospital would do it. But, we found out they do, so we feel we need to weight the options. Brian has started researching it and found a lot of pros and cons.

Just wondering if anyone else here has done it/ plan on doing it?
If so, are you doing it privately, or donating it?

Not even considering it. Too rich for our blood (pun intended).

yes, it is very expensive, especially if you keep it for yourself.

We considered it, until we looked at the price tag attached to it. After that, we decided it wasn't for us.

Way to costly. And FYI almost every hospital in the US uses the stem cells if you don't bank it. So if you don't use it then its still put to use.

I will be donating the cord blood. It is way too costly for me to store, but since the hospital offers the donation, I am all for it.

If they ask if I want to donate it, I will gladly, but it's way too expensive for us as well.

Too expensive! Although I sort of wish we did have the money.
