Take the cord blood registration questionnaire to confirm your eligibility.
If you are not able to complete your registration online, return your completed consent form to your healthcare provider during one of your prenatal visits or bring it with you to the hospital on your delivery day. Tell your nurse you wish to donate your cord blood.
Donate cord blood
Cord blood is collected after your baby and placenta have been safely delivered. If your baby’s cord blood unit qualifies, a staff member will visit you to collect additional information before you leave the hospital.
