"I will intentionally take steps to help facilitate each step of collection so that you can focus on birthing your baby and basking in your newborn bliss. It is such a privilege and honor to be a part of your family’s birth story and the future-proofing of your family’s health with Anja."
"It is easy to talk about disparities in healthcare, but Anja Health is putting words into action. Kathryn Cross is motivated by her little brother's history. That's what makes Anja Health stand out from other cord blood banks. Kathryn's personal connection to innovative stem cell treatments authenticates Anja Health's 'patients over profits' cord value. This type of disruptive, entrepreneurship is exactly what the healthcare industry needs."
"Anja's founder has an amazing personal story - her brother couldn't find a stem cell match. I banked blood for each of my 3 kids, and it's so nice to know that I have it."

"As a mom and doula, find out why I REGRET not banking my children's cord blood and how if I did, it could have changed our lives."
"My prognosis is great. I'm in remission. [Umbilical cord blood] Stem cells put me in remission."

"Stem cells (SC) from umbilical cord blood (UCB) are now a new reliable alternative to treat different blood diseases, if the samples are frozen at the moment of birth. Human umbilical cord blood, with its real abundance, simple collection procedure and no serious ethical dilemmas, represents a valuable alternative to the use of other stem cell sources."
"Human umbilical cord stem cells are -in contrast to embryonic and fetal stem cells- ethically noncontroversial, inexpensive and readily available source of cells."
"Children [with cerebral palsy] who received one intravenous dose of at least 25 million stem cells per kilogram of their body weight saw improvements in motor function a year later."
"Stem cells are thought to have great therapeutic and biotechnological potential. This will not only to replace damaged or dysfunctional cells, but also rescue them and/or deliver therapeutic proteins after they have been engineered to do so."
