The companies will work together to provide expecting parents with information about storing stem cells from their newborn's umbilical cord. As the most popular digital media brand for American moms, Scary Mommy is an ideal partner for Americord to spread awareness about the potentially life saving benefits of umbilical cord blood and tissue banking.
