How can I apply for donation?
Cord blood is procured only in cases in which the mother has given explicit consent. In other cases, the placenta and the umbilical cord are simply destroyed alongside all other biological waste.
Filled in and signed forms of consent (Informed Consent for Cord Blood Donation – two copies, Health Questionnaire for Cord Blood Donors – one copy, Identification Form for Cord Blood Donors – one copy) must be taken to the delivery centre and handed in to the staff on the day of the delivery.
The Bank organises the delivery of the procurement kit and the transport of procured blood to the Bank from the delivery centre whose staff have been educated by the Bank to conduct the procurement process. If you are planning to deliver in a delivery centre not on the list of delivery centres educated by the Bank, please contact us so that we could reach an agreement.
Informed Consent for Cord Blood Donation (print three copies)
- Carefully read and sign all three copies. One copy stays with you and the remaining two must be handed in at the time of reception to the delivery room (one stays in your patient history and the other is delivered to the Ana Rukavina Cord Blood Bank alongside the following two forms: Health Questionnaire and Identification Form).
Health Questionnaire for Cord Blood Donors (print one copy)
- Please answer the questions truthfully. All the data is confidential and is used to protect the future cord blood recipient. Fill in the questionnaire no earlier than two weeks before delivery.
Identification Form for Cord Blood Donors (print one copy)
- This data is confidential and will only be used should the necessity to contact you arise.
