We just welcomed our third child into the world on June 6th and life hasn’t been the same since. It was only a few short weeks ago that he joined our family, but he feels like he has been here forever, in a good way of course. As I was sitting on the couch staring at this precious new life in front of me I looked at my husband and said, “If only I could keep him this small forever.” I don’t know what it is about a sweet baby that just turns me into a puddle, but if I could bottle up this newborn stage a little longer I might be able to just stop having babies! But they grow so fast it has me over here saying GIVE ME ALL THE BABIES! Don’t worry, I’m not trying to have any more too soon. But on a serious note, there is nothing more miraculous then bringing life into the world and watching that life blossom before your eyes.
July is a celebration of another amazing option when welcoming new life, and July is Cord Blood Awareness month! Cord Blood Banking is the process of preserving your child’s newborn stem cells for potential future use. There has been so much research of the process and benefits of Cord Blood Banking over the last few years. When I had my first child, I hadn’t heard much about it, but when we were expecting our second and third the opportunities were presented to us. The more I have learned about Cord Blood Banking, the more I have been amazed at what banking your newborn’s stem cells can do.
Our baby’s newborn stem cells have so much potential and the research of their uses are just beginning. Not only can they be used for your child, but they can potentially be used for family members as well. This takes the impact that banking your newborns stem cells can make even further. As a parent with three children, this is definitely something that I would have loved to hear more about before my child arrived. Cord Blood Banking is an incredible discovery that every parent should explore.
Welcoming a child into the world is a really big deal. There are so many unknowns in the adventure that awaits you and you spend all this time imagining what life is going to be like, who your little one is going to take after, what their temperament is going to be like, and more. You spend hours dreaming of the nursery, the little things that will fill your baby’s closet, and all the baby gear that will make your life easier. You spend hours, days, months, just dreaming of what life is going to be like when you welcome your precious bundle of joy into the world. In all that research and time, taking the opportunity to learn about Cord Blood Banking can be a big deal for your family. Learning what you can about the process and benefits can be a huge part of preparing for your new bundle of joy. Although you may have never heard about Cord Blood Banking, or you may have never considered it before, taking time to educate yourself is always a great option.
Soon you will be approaching the day that you had always dreamed about. Soon you will hold that baby in your arms and you will have the answers to your questions; who they look like, what color their hair is, what the shape of their nose is, you will know, and your life will never be the same. These precious little babies, they have the power to change your life in an instant. These precious little babies, they have the power to make you love more than you have ever loved before.
