A friend of ours with leukemia made a plea to donate cord blood to help others in her situation. We looked into it and found that there were no donation companies in our state. However, one company would ship us a collection kit to FedEx back to them. Because it would be shipped, if we delivered certain times of the week then they wouldn't be able to accept the sample.
The doctor was great about collecting the cord blood, especially at 4:30 in the morning. The thing we didn't know was that the hospital staff wouldn't take responsibility for putting the blood together for the kit--they didn't want to accept the liability. That responsibility fell to me... after 18 hours of labor, even though I wasn't the one delivering it was still difficult.
We did get a thank-you form letter from the company. Hope it helped someone out.
