Preconditions for donors
The welfare of mother and child is always the primary concern.
Therefore, irrespective of your decision to act as an unrelated donor (URD), make a family-oriented donation or opt for own storage, the umbilical cord blood is extracted exclusively by trained personnel at one of our partner clinics.
The blood is only ever removed following the birth and the severance of the umbilical cord from the child. If you are both well, there is no longer any objection to umbilical blood removal.
