I didn't. We delayed cord clamping so DD could get the cord blood... So there was nothing else to donate. Though I would've loved to if we didn't delay clamping.

I knew I spelt it wrong.. Oppssyy.. But I saw on TV that a couple donated the umbilical cord to save lives. I guess the blood in the cord works and saves lives.

Cord blood, not the actual umbilical cord. Cord blood has stem cells in them and that's what they take out to use.
