I had filled out all papers and sent them to the cord blood bank. I have a partial video of my delivery in the video the doctor asked if cord blood was needed and the nurse said "no." In the video you can clearly see the information and the papers on the counter for the cord blood to be taken. I had asked after baby was born if the cord blood had been sent off and she stated she did not get it. she claimed they were more worried about getting baby out, But the cord blood is taken after baby is out so that was not a correct statement.
