Anthony Nolan Cord Collection
New mums can now give life twice in one day, thanks to the
Anthony Nolan cord collection centre here at Saint Mary's.
By donating your umbilical cord after birth, which would
normally just be discarded, you could provide someone with blood
cancers the chance of a transplant. Cord blood is rich in stem
cells which could save someone's life.
The process is simple and straightforward and you most women say
they didn't even know we were there.
For more information please click on the links below, or talk to
our specialist Anthony Nolan midwives when you visit the hospital.
Don't worry if you don't sign up during your pregnancy, you can
arrange to donate your umbilical cord right up to giving birth.
