Parents, Cord Blood Saves Lives.

Educate yourself. Get the facts. Make the choice that is right for you.

Expectant parents are faced with an overwhelming number of important decisions before their baby is even born. Cord blood banking or cord blood donation is one of the most important, life-altering decisions a new parent can make. Learn more ››

Save the Cord Foundation, a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization, is dedicated to making this important decision as simple as possible for parents by providing unbiased educational information regarding cord blood banking / donation and the life-saving qualities of cord blood.


Since 1988, there have been more than 35,000 cord blood transplants worldwide.  Far from science-fiction, cord blood is currently used to treat over 80 diseases including sickle cell anemia, lymphoma and leukemia. In the emerging field of regenerative medicine there is great promise in treating things like autism, diabetes, hearing loss, stroke, brain injury and more.
