The Cord Blood Center Our team at the Cord Blood Center provides the latest up-to-date information and free resources for expecting parents and those with a sick child who could benefit from receiving a cord blood transplant. There have been over 35,000 cord blood transplants thanks to donors worldwide. With more awareness we can increase this number and further save the lives of children suffering from cancer and other serious illnesses.
The Tiniest Babies We have developed this website to serve as a registry for the world's smallest surviving babies. Because the survival of infants with birth weights less than 400 grams (14.1 ounces) is very uncommon, it is not possible for meaningful data on the outcomes of these infants to be collected in a single neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) or even a network of NICUs. We hope over time to collect and collate data on the long-term health, growth, and development of this vulnerable group of infants. The infants listed in this registry include those reported in the lay media as well as medical journals. We have not attempted to verify the information listed, since in most cases this would not be possible. We invite health care providers and parents to send us corrections or updates of data already included in the registry or to submit new cases for addition to the list. We hope that the information provided here will be of some help to physicians and parents faced with difficult decisions about obstetrical and pediatric care in situations where such a tiny baby may be born. It is well known, however, that gestational age is a much more important factor than birth weight in determining the prognosis of an extremely premature baby.

University of Arkansas for Medical Services Although it’s one of the most natural conditions in the world, pregnancy carries high risks for some women and their babies. Approximately 10 percent of all pregnancies in Arkansas are classified as high risk. Ensuring that these special cases receive the special medical care necessary requires a special health-care facility. In our state, that facility is UAMS Medical Center.
