Do you take your decisions after careful weighing of all pros and cons? Well, everyone does that. It’s the most logical thing to do. Mothers especially are too cautious when it comes to taking decisions that concern their children’s health or wellbeing. If you are a mother or a parent of a child, you will better understand what I am talking about.

Consider this scenario. You are presented with the opportunity of taking a crucial decision. This particular decision could be the only alternative to save your child, if he/ she suffers from certain health disorders in the future. Would you say yes or refuse to go with this option? I guess this question is irrelevant because of the logical conclusion that you would jump at such a chance, wouldn’t you? Trust me; any parent in your shoes would have done just that.

Understanding Umbilical Cord Blood Banking

Stem cell banking or cord blood banking is something that promises exactly that. All it takes is merely a simple decision on your part to preserve your newborn baby’s umbilical cord blood. This can go a long way in preserving good health for your child, close family members or even to utter strangers in future.

Range of Possibilities

Medical research has confirmed that the stem cells that are found within the umbilical cord blood possess the ability to replicate themselves and form any cell of any organ of the body. This particular unique characteristic trait of these stem cells beholds innumerable treatment possibilities in the current medical scenario.

The best part about this wonderful breakthrough in medical science is that it is absolutely undemanding and does not need any surgery or complex medical procedure to source the umbilical cord stem cells. All that you need to do is to arrive at a decision to bank or preserve your baby’s umbilical cord. Considering that the umbilical cord is something that you would be throwing out after birth of your baby anyway, your decision to preserve it for future treatment possibilities is certainly a tremendous decision on your part.

Benefits of Umbilical Cord Blood Banking

The stem cells that are sourced from umbilical cord can be utilized in treating a variety of disorders like cancers, Thalassemia, Diabetes, Stroke, Cerebral palsy, brain injury etc. These stem cells sourced from the umbilical cord can be used for the child, his/ her sibling, a close family member or to someone totally unrelated.

Full blown research and clinical trials are going on in this comparatively new method of treatment. So a decision to preserve your baby’s umbilical cord blood can signify that in future when treatment of newer diseases using cord stem cells is made possible, your child stands to have an advantage over others who do not have their umbilical cord blood preserved.

As a parent you may take many important decisions on behalf of your children, but the decision to store the umbilical cord cells definitely tops the list. What else could be more comforting to parents other than securing the health and longevity of their children?

There are three blondes who are on a road trip.

As they are driving through the desert, their car breaks down. They have no phone to call anyone, so they decide to walk to the nearest city, several miles away.

They each decide to take one thing to make the journey better. The first blonde takes the radio and says, "If we get bored, we can put the radio on and listen to music."

The second blonde decides to take continue reading...

Your Fortune For Today

Travel could be on your mind. You’re probably excited about a forthcoming vacation. You might need to finalize some arrangements today but find it difficult to reach people you need to speak to. This is frustrating but it shouldn’t lessen your enthusiasm. Keep trying. You’ll eventually reach the appropriate person and finish whatever you’re trying to accomplish. Hang in there.

You have the opportunity to do some intense self-healing today so you communicate more directly with your core self without the distractions of other people. Do what you can to hone in on the internal issues that require your attention. It’s key that you learn how to address these issues yourself instead of relying on other people to take care of these needs for you today.

You could be invited on a last-minute adventure today. By all means, seize the chance! You’re certainly ready for a change, and this opportunity could turn out to be just what you’ve been hoping for. Adventure calls, and whether it’s a journey or a lecture, you’ll find it enlarges your world in just the way you’d hoped. Today promises to be stimulating as well as fun. Enjoy it!

Today, work will expect something completely different from you. You may be asked to cover up for someone else’s task or takeover a project nowhere near your expertise or handle an emergency. Dont panic, since you will have people to help you. Just don’t let your emotions run away with you. It could spoil everything.

Although business and money matters continue to go well, some rather unsettling news regarding either your finances or the economy in general could reach you today. However, don’t accept as truth anything you hear until you check the facts. The planetary energies now lend themselves to the spread of rumour, gossip, and misinformation. This is definitely the day to hang on to your objectivity.

There is some probability that you’ll want to escape from reality today. You aren’t anxious to face a situation that demands that you commit yourself. Is this because you’re afraid that you lack the ability to assume this new responsibility? This is an honest-to-goodness chance to fulfill your dreams of success. There can be no question of evading it! Get busy!

If you are contemplating whether you are ‘up to the standard’ then well…you are not! You need to stop thinking about it and start doing. Right now you are just skimming on a superficial level. It’s time to go deeper and find out what you really want and discover where you are really lacking. Once you do that…there will be no stopping you!

Don’t be surprised if things don’t go exactly according to plan today. Unexpected events are likely to pop up and disturb the course of action. Realize that these disruptions have a place in your life and that they’re occurring for a reason. You might not understand exactly how or why, but that’s OK. You don’t need to know. Welcome these new energies into your life.

All the efforts you have been making to improve your will finally begin to pay off. Give a little thought to how you will be spending money as well as alternative ways to pull in some extra dough. Give some thought to putting your finances to a practical use and if you were thinking of investing, now is the time.
