Mothers helping others

Welcome to California's Umbilical Cord Blood Collection Program. This website is designed as an informational resource for expectant parents, patients and their families, as well as health-care professionals, researchers and the general public.


Cord blood is used to treat a variety of diseases, ranging from anemia and cancers of the blood such as leukemia and lymphomas, to disorders such as sickle-cell disease and severe combined immunodeficiency or "bubble boy disease."


Through the Umbilical Cord Blood Collection Program, mothers of newborns will be able to donate their babies’ umbilical cord blood and have it publicly banked so it is available to anyone for lifesaving transplantations.

Cord blood donations are accepted in the Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Sacramento areas.
