If all else fails ask your OB before delivery. Otherwise you can always search online to find the nearest cord bank. Also make sure that the hospital that you will be delivering at will do the banking. I wanted to donate my son's but was told that my hospital did not have those services unless the banking was for personal use, because of the cost.
