Oh is that a public donation program? If so, I'm jealous. I don't think private banking is worth it, but I would have totally jumped on the chance for public donation. Unfortunately, the closest hospital to me that does that is three hours away. At least my doctor is for delayed cord clamping. I'd be highly upset if the cord blood went to waste both ways.

"Shake it up now, Sugaree. I'll meet you at the Jubilee. And if that Jubilee don't come. Maybe I'll meet you on the run."

I'm so jealous! I was going to donate the baby's cord blood but my sister-in-law has had leukemia, which exempts us from doing it (since you can't donate if a close relative has had leukemia).

So cool! I am totally jealous. I really, really want to do cord blood banking but I just don't think I can afford it. Also, I asked and apparently my hospital doesn't do cord blood donation for some reason. Weird. Anyways, congrats!

Yep, it's public donation.

Only 3 hospitals have the facilities for it in my state, luckily my local is one of them.
