How to Donate?


The expectant parent's decision to donate their baby's umbilical cord blood should be done between 32 weeks of gestation and before going into labour.

When you have decided to donate cord blood to save a life, you should discuss the donation with the attending Obstetrician and Gynaecologist (ObGyn). After the discussion with the ObGyn, contact SCBB at 6394-5011 or email donate@scbb.com.sg to complete the Cord Blood Donation Process before delivery.

Expectant parents, who have previously donated their baby’s cord blood to SCBB, would be required to complete the Cord Blood Donation Process again if they intend to donate the cord blood of their next baby. As every pregnancy is different, the Cord Blood Donation Process will determine the donation eligibility of the subsequent pregnancy.

The SCBB regrets that cord blood donations received from potential donors without prior completion of the Cord Blood Donation Process (i.e. signing of the Informed Consent Form and the completion of the Maternal Risk Questionnaire) will not be accepted.

Cord blood, which is rich in blood-forming stem cells, has the potential to save the life of someone with a life-threatening condition, which requires a Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT).

Please make an informed choice! The decision to donate your baby's umbilical cord blood after delivery is voluntary. However, your donated umbilical cord blood could be that life-saving unit for a patient's survival.
