Apart from costs, are there other downsides to signing up for cord blood banking?

I think you need to look at the company which stores cord blood. You would want them to be around for the next 10-30 years.
Personally, i think it is a good idea to keep cord blood. If cost is an issue, just store the cord blood for your first child will be good enough.

there's one company which stores the cord blood at kk hospital. I like the idea because if anything go wrong at the building eg. blackout, it's gonna be a very serious issue and I expect govt to be involved.....

the inconvenience of signing forms?

pay money, they keep the cord blood lor.

you don't have to lift a finger besides giving your payment details.

what exactly are you asking?
