Boston’s First Cord Blood Bank

The Brigham and Women’s donation center, which opened in late spring, is the first Umbilical Cord Blood Donation Bank in Boston and has so far collected 130 cord-blood donations. UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester and Women & Infants Hospital in Providence are the other two hospitals in New England allow mothers to donate cord blood.

Demand for the chance to donate cord blood was increasing among Boston women, said Dr. Robert Barbieri, chairman of obstetrics and gynecology at Brigham and Women’s and co-coordinator of the program. Barbieri said he received several calls each month from women asking where they could donate.

“It’s a great way to use a biological resource to give people hope for the future,’’ said Barbieri. “It’s a gift of life.’’
