Register to the Public cord blood bank

You decided to give the umbilical cord blood of your child at birth ? This precious donation will be made in three steps : the first being the registration.

To register to the Public Cord Blood Bank, you must complete a form that can be obtained by contacting an Héma-Québec's counselor at 1-800-565-6635 or 514-832-5000, ext. 5253. It will be sent to you by post. Then, it only takes a few minutes to fill out.

Before contacting a representative of the Public Cord Blood Bank, the future mothers wishing to donate the umbilical cord blood of their babies must be :

  • in good health;
  • aged 18 and over;
  • register prior to the 36th week of pregnancy;
  • pregnant with one baby (not twins);
  • give birth at our current partner hospital centres
