Sort of an off-the-wall question, but does anyone know if you can bank cord blood when you have a homebirth?
We're toying with the idea of another child, and I'm finally confident enough for a homebirth, but I'm adamant about banking the cord blood because of our oldest's cancer. He's at risk for a secondary cancer, such as leukemia because of his treatment.
I'm at the point that I'd give up a homebirth in order to bank the cord blood. ( It's not a big deal, I had great hospital births so I wouldn't be too disappointed. What I hate about the hospital is the stay afterwards.)
We haven't even decided on a 4th yet, so this discussion may be irrelevant to me...
