this is Dr. David
she can still do stem cell banking from her umbilical cord for the baby.
it can be expensive since the stem cells have to be stored in frozen for a long period of time.
and the chances of needing this stem cell is rare, since it is only used in rare bone marrow transplant procedures currently to treat bone marrow cancers.
cancer centers can get matching stem cells from relatives or from stem cell banks sometimes in the future if the stem cells are needed for bone marrow transplantation.
we didn't do the stem cell banking for our child
but it is up to her if she wishes to do it
that is good she stopped smoking.
