The Old Wives Tale About Umbilical Cords

When I was younger, I used to hear about myths on pregnancy and giving birth. It was an old wives tale about umbilical cords and how mothers in this part of the world used to store the umbilical cords of their new born in a glass container. They store it until its all dry and throw it away somewhere far from where they live. They do this on the belief that the owner of the said umbilical cord will go far in life.

I wanted to do this with my baby when I gave birth but since I was groggy giving birth I forgot about it. I was not able to ask the hospital what they did with my daughters umbilical cord.

Did you know that an umbilical cord is known to treat over 75 diseases and disorders that are treatable with stem cells. It can be used as treatment for stroke, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, cancer, multiple sclerosis, lupus, neurodegenerative disorders, and many other medical problems and in the future might be of use for regenerating cells.

Have I known this information seven years ago I would very strict about instruction about how my daughters umbilical cord should be stored . I don’t plan to have another child anymore but if you know anyone who is pregnant it will be great to have them enroll now for this wonderful opportunity.
