Cloth diapering has come a long way and is more convenient than ever as well as the most cost effective and environmentally friendly diapering option available. You can find a great variety of cloth diapering products at Milagros.

Cord Blood Banking Options Workshop, Sunday, April 15th, 11:00am: From the Instructor: Did you know the stem cells in your baby’s umbilical cord blood can now be used to treat nearly 80 diseases, including cancers and blood disorders? Are you interested to hear how doctors have recently started using cord blood to treat brain injuries, diabetes, and hearing loss?

Come learn about your options to donate or save your baby’s cord blood stem cells. Cord blood can only be collected at the time of the baby’s birth, so it is important to think through the decision well before your delivery date.

Donating cord blood benefits society by providing stem cells that can be used in life saving treatments for sick patients. Saving your baby’s stem cells for your own family can provide access to life saving therapies as well as emerging treatments that require a patient’s own cells.

Mark Benkoske is an expert in cord blood and has educated thousands of families about their options for banking these powerful cells. Please feel free to come to this casual gathering with any questions or a just curiosity to learn more. Light snacks will be provided. For more information, please call 503-929-2788 or email mbenkoske@cordblood.com
