  1. This is a suggestion for some informed input from Pediatricans and Ob-Gyns regarding cord blood and the harvesting, or better said, the lack of harvesting of same. My daughter is a Pediatrician and tells me their Academy does not support banking of cord blood for individuals because not everyone could afford it. I have gotten no good answer from the Ob-Gyns why they do not support it. As an MD and chairman of our Hospital Board I am hard pressed to explain why out of 1200 births we only had 15 cord blood specimens harvested.I spoke to the Chief Pediatric Heme/Onc at our nearby nationally acclaimed teaching hospital and he enthusiastically endorsed it. I am an ENT and have no first hand knowledge of why this is not being done here or much of anywhere. Educate me.
