Yes, we will respect your decision, should you decide against donating to us.

Cord blood, cord and placenta contain DNA, RNA and metabolomic information during the time your baby is in your womb.  The samples you provide – allow us to study the environment your baby was exposed to during its time in your womb.  This will help us assess how the prenatal environment affects a child’s future metabolic health and neurodevelopment. We understand if you need to donate your cord blood for banking or have some religious concerns, we will only request a small amount for our sample collection. We will respect your decision should you feel uncomfortable donating to us.
