Celebrities Turn to Cord Blood Banking

Some recent celebrity births might be starting a new trend - banking their baby's cord blood! Both moms were spotted with cord blood banking kits in the recent past while out and about with their husbands. Not too sure what storing your baby's umbilical cord lends itself to? Cord blood stem cells can help treat nearly 80 serious diseases that range from blood caners to immune system disorders.

Looks like Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott left their doctor's office in Los Angelos with a kit from Cord Blood Registry.

Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian were spotted shopping around Beverly Hills while Disick held a cord blood banking kit from StemCyte, a nearby cord blood bank in Covina.

If you're curious about the benefits of cord blood banking take a look at the Cord Blood Education Center where you can take a self guided tour. You'll also be able to see what other parents and doctors are saying about cord blood banking!
