Pregnancy & Postpartum Guide

We are grateful for the sponsors of this guide which are featured below. Our hope is that this guide will help you navigate pregnancy and postpartum options with ease!

Covid has changed almost every aspect of our lives over the last few months, one thing has remained the same – pregnancy and birth.

With all of the uncertainty right now surrounding the process, both for first-time moms who are new to everything and for veteran moms who are navigating new health measures due to the pandemic, we thought this would be the perfect time to launch our inaugural Pregnancy & Postpartum Guide!

Here’s a roadmap to help you navigate everything pregnancy and postpartum – from hospitals to home births, OB/GYNs to doulas, support services to lactation consultants, and more.

Your baby’s umbilical cord is made up of tissue and contains blood, both of which are rich sources of powerful stem cells. Newborn stem cells are unique because they are biologically younger and more flexible than adult stem cells.

For more than 30 years, cord blood stem cells have been used in the treatment of cancers and blood disorders. Today, there are more than 500 clinical trials underway for conditions including autism, cerebral palsy, hearing loss and other conditions that have no cure. Which means that preserving cord blood and tissue now could mean more therapeutic options in the future for your family.

CBR is the world’s largest and most experienced newborn stem cell company. Since 1992, families have entrusted CBR to store more than 900,000 cord blood and cord tissue samples. For more information and to receive a special discount contact Chrissy Moggio or Whit Shelburn, your local newborn stem cell educators.

Offering virtual and in person classes, Stork has built an expert team across the east coast from Maryland south to Charleston.
