How Maia’s cord blood changed her life and the lives of her family


Maia Friedlander was the first NZ child to be successfully treated with her own cord blood after suffering brain damage at birth.

Thankfully her parents, Jillian and Daniel, had this option because they had saved Maia’s cord blood stem cells with CordBank at her birth. These precious stem cells were re-infused when Maia was four years old and the results were life changing for her and her family.

Maia’s parents have a simple message for all expectant parents:

“You never know what can happen at your child’s birth or in their lives. But when you have their cord blood stored you have options.

Bank your baby’s cord blood with CordBank. You only get one chance and it’s a decision you’ll never regret.”
