Public Cord Blood Bank Donation

Atrium Health Carolinas Medical Center is one of a handful of hospitals in North Carolina participating in umbilical cord blood collection for public banks. This means when you have a baby, you can choose to anonymously donate the blood from the placenta and umbilical cord to a cord blood bank.

Instead of being thrown out, donated cord blood can be used to treat more than 80 different diseases, including leukemia and lymphoma. Free and painless for you and your baby, cord blood cells could potentially be lifesaving for someone battling a life-threatening condition or waiting for a transplant.

If the cord blood meets all criteria, it’ll be stored at Carolinas Cord Blood Bank and listed on the Be The Match ® cord blood registry, where it'll be matched with a person who needs it.

Thinking About Donating?

Most women who are healthy and having one baby are able to participate in the easy collection process, and it won’t change your labor or delivery in any way. Remember the choice is entirely yours, so talk to your family and care team as soon as possible to determine what’s best for you and your baby.
