You are contemplating what to do with your baby’s umbilical cord and placenta after you give birth. Which one below is not recommended?

  • You can encapsulate your placenta and change them into pills 
  • Preserve the blood, umbilical cord and placenta by collecting and storing in a registered cord blood bank- This can be used in the treatment of many life saving diseases, cancer, immune deficiency, Sickle cell, and over 70 different types of disease.  They are hopefully treating Parkinson’s, Cerebral Palsy, and other neurological diseases as well.
  • Can let the cord dry up and fall off and put it in a scrape book for your precious memories.
  • Can burn the cord off with use of candles ritually and turn it into a necklace or hang it on your wall
  • Discard in the garbage
