Fee adjustments (discounts)are applied to the following programmes:

  • Multiple births

  • Loyalty programme

  • Referral programme
    • Current cryo-save family members will receive a R500 Woolworths voucher for referring new families to us. These vouchers will be sent after the successful storage of the referred family – there is no limit to a number of families you refer to our program.
  • Cost-free family donation programme
    • To qualify for the cost-free donation programme, a sibling of the unborn child must have been diagnosed with a disease that is currently treatable with umbilical cord blood stem cells (an FDA approved indication for transplantation) and must be being treated by a medical specialist (oncologist/haematologist), who agrees that the stem cells could be used for treatment. If eligible, Cryo-Save will enroll the family into the Cost-Free Donation programme, provide the cord blood collection kit, and process and store (cryo-preserve) the new-born’s cord blood sample without any cost to the family.
  • Education program
    • Ask your health care provider for our illustrated guide to stem cells that is compiled from reputable, evidence-based sources to help all parents make an informed decision about stem cell storage for their children. You can also request a guide via email 

**Note: Surcharge will apply to all births outside South Africa
