Bollywood beauty, Aishwarya Rai, who is currently promoting stem cell preservation by Life Cell, a biotechnology company, revealed that she and her hubby Abhishek Bachchan opted for stem cell banking when their daughter Aaradhya was born.
“I had always banked that thought even before I got married. At that point of time we were contacted by a lot of companies and closer to the date we interacted extensively with Life Cell. Once were convinced we went ahead with the decision to bank with Life Cell,” Aishwarya said.
She added, “The most important role in my life is that of being a mother. Choosing to bank our baby’s umbilical cord stem cells with LifeCell is a treasured gift that will stay with her for life and is an investment for her healthy future.”
The biotechnology company has even brought down the price of the whole process of banking a baby’s stem cell, and is a lot more cheaper right now. Aish, besides urging expecting parents to look at it as a sensible investment, also requests family and friends to gift it to expecting parents.
“Families and friends can come together to make this gift possible in a parent’s life. We traditionally buy so many things for expecting parents,” Aishwarya said at the launch of the initiative.
