A few weeks ago, we wrote about a federal bill to educate expectant parents about cord blood banking. Ohio is not even waiting for the federal government to consider it, the state is in the process of passing its own legislation.
Cord blood banking is an important opportunity for expectant parents and it is beneficial for them to have unbiased information about such options. According to the legislation, doctors in Ohio will be required to educate their patients about the cord blood storage process and will provide information to help with the decision process.
Parents in Ohio parents will have all of the information available to them in order to make an informed decision about banking baby’s cord blood.
M.A.Z.E. Cord Blood Laboratories is in favor of any programs that encourage the education of expectant parents. We work closely with non-profit educational organizations (as well as our local public bank) to ensure that parents have all the information they need to be comfortable with their decision.
