Mai Ibrahim, Sarah Alhajali, Saad Aswad


Umbilical cord blood is a rich source of powerful stem cells, which comes from the baby’s umbilical cord and can be collected immediately after birth. We surveyed the knowledge, attitude & decision of pregnant women regarding umbilical cord blood banking in the United Arab of Emirates (UAE). The purpose of the survey is to gauge and evaluate their level of knowledge and general attitudes about cord blood banking and associated therapies for stem cells and their effect on their practice. The secondary purpose was to better understand the impact of the knowledge and attitudes after an educational intervention performed by a trained Medical consultant whereby pregnant women were informed about cord blood banking.
