The collection procedure, simple and painless
Lifeline supplies expectant parents with the LIFE-KIT upon registration, which enables the collection of the cord blood and cord tissue. Each LIFE-KIT has a unique code number that links all following procedures directly to the parents and their newborn. It is advised that parents are informed ahead of time and have obtained the LIFE KIT well before their due date. On the day of labour, parents must deliver the LIFE KIT to their doctor who will be responsible for collecting the newborns’ cord blood and/or cord tissue.
The collection procedure:
Does not interfere with the labour process
Is performed without any contact with the newborn
Lasts for less than 10 minutes
Is performed by gynaecologists
