There is a lot to consider when you first start researching cord blood banking, which is why it is usually recommended that you start gathering your information and researching the subject early on in your pregnancy. However, that is not the only reason you should start doing your homework early. In fact, getting a head start can actually save you some money!
Several cord blood banks offer an “early enrollment discount” which is available to families if they select a cord bank within a certain time frame of their pregnancy. Do your research early and ask the cord blood company you are interested in if they offer an early enrollment discount – this could save you over $100.
