What Every Millennial Father Needs To Know About Cord Blood Banking

From screen time to social media use, millennial fathers face parenting decisions their parents never dreamed of. With breakthroughs in medical technology, new dads have even more important choices to make about their children’s healthcare. 

The men of Generation Y - also known as Millennials - are on the forefront of changing roles for fatherhood. Raised in a post-feminist environment, complete with working moms and dads alike, Millennial fathers are much more likely than their predecessors to embrace non-conventional roles as husbands, partners, fathers and workers. These roles entail a lot more than a simple willingness to change diapers or do the grocery shopping: it’s about redefining what it means to be a provider. As more and more women hold down full-time jobs - while trying to be the primary caregiver at the same time - millennial dads carve out new roles, duties and responsibilities to their children.   

But over the years, there is one role that has never changed: a father’s first instinct will always be to protect his child. Whether it is something as basic as putting food on the table and providing a roof over their child’s head, dads are wired to provide and protect, and will consider any option that could help his family.

When it comes to safeguarding your children and their future, Millennial fathers need to consider cord blood banking and the long-term benefits that put it on par with buying health insurance. The very first successful cord blood transplant was performed in 1988*, and the ensuing 30 years have revealed even more therapeutic applications for cord blood. Once discarded as waste, cord blood and tissue are already helping patients battle over eighty diseases, ranging from cancers such as Leukemia to blood disorders such as Beta Thalassemia Major. Cord blood can even be used to treat deadly immune diseases and metabolic disorders. And this is just the beginning. Currently, clinical trials approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) are being carried out on over thirty additional diseases such as autism, spinal cord injury and cerebral palsy.

But given recent advancements in the technology, Evercord has been able to  to make the entire process more affordable, giving parents a whole range of payment options that start as low as $25 per week.

Of course, every new father hopes he will never need to use his baby’s stem cells, but it makes sense to be prepared, especially if there is a medical history within the family. The little tube of cord blood and tissue might come in handy for your child or someone in your family.
