How does the donation work? First you have to apply to donate the umbilical cord, you can get this information from either your hospital or gynecologist. After your baby’s birth the umbilical cord is clamped and cut, Doctors will then immediately take the rest of the umbilical cord away and extract the cord blood stem cells within.
