Pregnancy or recently had a baby

Things to consider:


You are unable to donate if you are pregnant.

Recent pregnancy

You can donate 6 months following delivery if the pregnancy extended beyond the 12th week.
This gives you time to replace the iron normally lost during pregnancy

Blood Transfusion

If you have received a blood transfusion or transplanted material since 1st January 1980, you will not be able to give blood.


You can donate if you are breastfeeding.

If you have had a miscarriage or termination before 12 weeks it may be possible for you to donate, please get in touch with us to discuss
