Very informative ang thread na 'to :)
Question lang mga sis nacocontaminate ba ng blood ng mommy ang cord blood ng baby?
Dun sa mga kumuha ng stemcord pede nyo ba ibigay sakin [textspeak!] contact number ng agent nyo pati sa cordlife? Gusto ko sana magpademo e. Dinededma ako ng cordlife nag email na ko sa kanila e baka kase ang daming clients kaya hindi na nag call back sa kin. I'm 32 weeks now 38 weeks ako scheduled CS hindi pa ba too late kung magpapademo kami at 34 weeks pa?
Thanks po sa mga sasagot ng questions ko :)

Hi mga sis! just want to share this site to all " http://www.cordlife.ph/en/faq ". Also, cordlife contacted us after sending them an email sa " info@ph.cordlife.com ". Sorry tiggy79 nawala ko kasi yung callingcard ng agent ng cordlife pero try mo ulit sila i-email, I'm sure sasagot na sila sayo. I'm also waiting for the response of stemcord sa inquiry ko. Will give everyone feedback after namin magusap ng stemcord.

cord life na kuniha namin for my twins but since i had emergency CS walapa yung kit sa amin but the coordinator was able to assist us kahit out of town siya. We got it jan 3, Jan 4 i was confined na due to pre eclampsia jan 6 i gave birth na timing lang talaga nung nakuha namin pre term babies ko but I had my share of "ines" cause they didnt inform me yung bloodtset pala needs to be extracted thru a vein! eh wala na sila maextract sakin after my eergency cs nahirapan na yung anes ko so yung mga resident niya buong katawan ko may pasa arms ko feet ko nasa recovery room ako after CS kinukunan padin ako ng blood for cordlife kakainis talaga

Hi sisses! Up ko Lang ting thread na to, we're also trying to choose between Stemcord and Cordlife, so far from our conversation with the agents from both companies. Eto yung Mga nakuha namin:

Stemcord
-stores up to 40ml of stem cells in 2 bags
- 2 bags are stored in different location
- semi automated processing
- accredited by FACT
- releases cord blood within 72 hours of notification

Cordlife
- stores up to 25 ml of stem cells in 1 bag
- 1 location storage
- have the option for automated processing for additional fee, otherwise, manual processing is done
- Singapore facility is accredited by AABB, Philippine storage facility is not yet accredited by AABB since it's still newly operating.
- release of cord blood within 2 weeks of notification
- guarantees to look for and give you a matching cord blood, in case anything happens to your cord blood due to their negligence.

Baka may Mga na add pa kayo that I missed out, this will greatly help us in deciding where to bank our baby's cord blood.

Some parents consider Cordlife is cheaper because it has a storage facility here in the PH. However, I find it very risky. Aside from the fact Cordlife PH has no accreditation yet, our country is also calamity-prone.

I gave birth last nov 4, and last minute we opted for stemcord over cordlife. Mag babayad na nga dapat kami sa cordlife but we decided to call stemcord's agent muna. Main reason why we chose the latter,

1. Stemcord has 2 separate facilities in singapore
2. Cordlife's facilty in technohub is so-so, sabi nga ng isang sis natin dito sa thread na ito, para lang kitchen
3. Stemcord is a bit expensive pero you have the option of 5 year plan lang. Cordlife alam ko is 18 year plan/ contract dapat continue ang payment mo.
4. First hand experience eto, wala pa kami sa hospital, nasa st lukes na yung agent. Btw, their office is at st lukes qc. They have it shipped in singapore within 4 hours. Cordlife yata within 48 hours pa nila mapipick up.
Ayun, eto experience lang namin ng husband ko during my pregnancy/ childbirth ah. Ü

This is our first year with Stemcord and we're due to pay the annual storage fee for my son's blood cord banking. So far we have never regretted paying the "high" fee for it. Mas mabuti na nakakasigurado talaga especially if we can manage naman.

We really like how professional Stemcord agents are and very responsive sila kahit na after na namin sila makuha.

A friend of mine, was also about to give birth and was considering Stemcord and Cord Life. What swayed her to get Stemcord was when she visited Cord Life's facility in UP technohub. This is her exact words - "kakatakot para lang silang magluluto ng kakanin. Di state of the art or technologically advanced yung facility". Although to be fair i dont know of anyone pa naman na nagkaron ng problem sa storage nila with Cord Life 😊

I'm also interested to get this, I'm currently 13wk preggy.

Question, just in case we'll need the stem cell meron kaya retrieval fee? or just the shipping?

i got my certification from cordlife today..  buti na lang, walang naging problema tulad ng kulang sa count or contamination, paranoid pa naman ako baka makareceive ako ng call at sasabihing may problema, buti wala  ;)

Hi mommies! Someone from Cordlife texted me today. They have a special Mother's Day treat. They'll give you free 1 year storage worth P8000 and a 9-month Mustela skincare set worth P5000 if you'll enroll from May 1-15 :)

I am choosing between the two. kailangan ko pa convince si hubby kasi parang ayaw niya.

Question ko lang is may naka visit na ba sa facility ng Stem Cord? Kasi puro Cord Life lang ang feedback na mukhang kitchen yung lab. Parang unfair naman kung sa Cord Life lang ang napuntahan niyo.

problem with cordlife is their customer service. gave birth around 1am, hindi matawagan yun agent nila to pick up the cord blood. his phone is ringing pero no answer. finally we were able to talk to someone from cordlife around 9-10am na, pick up around 12nn na ata.
