Umbilical cord blood collection

Umbilical cord blood, commonly referred to as ‘cord blood’, is the blood that remains in the umbilical cord and placenta following childbirth. Cord blood can be used to treat and cure many life-threatening diseases. Cord blood may be collected at the time of birth and stored, so that it is available for the potential future treatment of the child or another person.

At Frauenklinik Dr. Geisenhofer we work with two private cord blood banks: Eticur and Vita34. The blood is extracted in our delivery room by one of our doctors and then stored by the provider of your choice.

You can choose between storing the blood for your private use or donating it. Either way, please contact your chosen provider at least 6 weeks prior to giving birth to talk about the process and arrange the blood collection.
