I don't know if I have ever shared anything about my pregnancy here, before. I wish I had my blog back then so I could have document everything. I had a very nice and relaxed pregnancy. Philip and I were living in Santorini, an amazing greek island. I wasn't working most of the time and I had plenty of time (sometimes more than I could handle). Unfortunately I had no internet access and also no friends around. Therefore it took me a loooong time to realize that I was actually pregnant. One month before I had Nereus, I was back in Athens, searching for a house to rent and preparing for the baby to come (yes, I did all these just a month before my baby came to this world).
Thinking about my pregnancy and labor, I see so many mistakes. Lack of education mistakes. If I could go back I would change many things. Things that I'm still struggling to accept. I know that I can't do anything to change these past events, but if I can inspire a mama to be to make a choice that's better for her child, that's a victory for me.
Let me talk to you about something you can do for your baby's health. Have you heard about stem cells?
Through cord blood banking, you can collect and preserve potentially lifesaving stem cells, and doing so could one day save the life of your child or a blood relative. You can bank even more stem cells by collecting them from 2 usable sources of stem cell-rich blood: the umbilical cord and the placenta. This service is called Placental and Cord Blood Banking, and it's available only from LifebankUSA. Whether you choose Placental and Cord Blood Banking or Cord Blood Banking alone, there are many important reasons to choose LifebankUSA.
I would really like to hear your opinion about this matter. Have you kept your baby's cells?
I wish I could have taken this step. And if you can, even though it costs and I know that it's not easy for everyone, I believe you should do it. It's all about our little ones health, right?
Also, LifebankUSA is having a Facebook contest and giving away 3 Britax Marathon 70G3 Convertible Car Seats with a value of $231.99 each!!! Enter the contest here! Contest ends at 12/31/13.
