Can I still opt for both placenta banking and encapsulation?

Our lab requires the entire placenta be sent to extract as many stem cells as possible from it.

Families wishing to do placenta encapsulation over banking can definitely still bank their cord blood and tissue.

Anja Health collects and preserves stem cells from the umbilical cord, which can help treat serious conditions like sickle-cell anemia, multiple sclerosis, lymphoma, heart disease, and other life-threatening diseases your child might face in the future. Banking your cord blood, cord tissue, and your placenta gives you the greatest quantity and variety of stem cells for future treatment possibilities. It's important to mention placenta encapsulation may come with some risks, for which you can read more about in our blog, but you can still choose to bank only the cord blood and cord tissue stem cells and use your placenta for encapsulation.

Anja Health can also work with a placenta encapsulation partner of your choice. To get started, order a collection kit before your due date, store it at room temperature, bring it to the hospital when you give birth, and let your healthcare provider know you have the kit ready.

After your baby is born, the Anja Health team will pick up the kit. They, along with your chosen placenta encapsulation partner, will take care of everything else. Contact Anja Health to order your kit and ask any questions you may have.
