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?

WITNESS: By death.
ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?
WITNESS: Take a guess.

ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his
sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?

ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the twenty-year-old, how old is he?
WITNESS: He's twenty, much like your IQ.

ATTORNEY: Doctor, how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?

Your natural warmth and loving nature should be more apparent than usual today. You’re likely to attract new people, both men and women, into your aura. Perhaps old friends you haven’t seen for a while suddenly reappear on the scene. This is an excellent time to plan a social event or invite a friend to lunch. You might also want to fix yourself up and plan a romantic evening!

Today you could be hit with some exciting news. This could involve new people or equipment coming onto the scene or an entirely new project or course of action that you’d never have dreamed of. This is likely to be a lucky break for you, as it probably suits your skills and talents nearly perfectly. Make the most of this opportunity. It could make a big difference to you.

Travel arrangements may have to be put off because of unexpected developments that keep you where you are. You may be worried about the consequences, but don’t waste your energy. You’ll be able to make the necessary trip, and accomplish whatever you’re hoping to do – just not today. Worry will only stress you out. The only productive way to deal with this is to keep moving.

A contract of some kind, perhaps involving the home, might need some careful consideration today. You could find it a little difficult to understand, as it could be full of fine print and legalese. Don’t be afraid to ask someone with a little more savvy to explain what you’re trying to read. It’s important that you know all the ins and outs before signing anything, for your own peace of mind, if nothing else.

Today relationships will be flexible and easygoing. It will be easier for you and those closest to you to laugh at yourselves instead of getting too serious about anything. It is time to do something special although you need not spend more than you can afford.

Visitors could come to your home tonight possibly for an informal get-together of some kind. Dear friends might be involved in some way. You’re likely to be very busy during the day, perhaps tying up loose ends. Your mind is probably going a thousand miles an hour, so you’ll need to wind down before going to bed tonight. You don’t want to lose any sleep.

It’s important for you to be extra cautious today. Make sure you’re calm and collected before you get behind the wheel of a car. Be sure to have a helmet on if you’re riding your bike. Strong emotions that come up at this time are apt to trigger a physical response that could be quite powerful and even a bit violent. Be careful of such tendencies.

Plans for getting together with a group of close friends may have to be called off because of sudden unexpected events. This could have you feeling somewhat down, especially if a romantic partner is involved. Try not to worry about it too much. You will be able to reschedule, and you could use the time alone anyway to relax and center yourself.

Review your day as you watch the sunset and observe the clouds turning from white to purple. Make sure that your head is in tune with your heart. Think about the day’s emotions and thought patterns and how they affected your actions. Determine if your actions were a result of either your rational mind or fluctuating moods.
