Protecting 3 Generations of Your Family With Your Baby’s Cord Blood

At Cordlife, we understand that as a parent, you did not have a chance to store your own precious cord blood. That is why, we have extended the biological insurance coverage of storing your baby’s cord blood to 3 generations of your family with CordBlood Network.

Unlike other cord blood banks that provide basic cord blood banking for only your child, CordBlood Network, a Cordlife initiated programme will assist in the search for a matching cord blood unit should the need arise for your child, his/her biological parents and biological grandparents. With CordBlood Network, you can now protect 3 generations of your family by storing your baby’s cord blood with Cordlife.
