I’m breastfeeding. Can I donate?

Not right away. For your health, following childbirth you need to wait at least nine months and until your baby is significantly weaned (that is, getting most of his/her nutrition from solids) before you donate blood.  

But you may still be able to help in a different, and very special, way. If you have excess breast milk you may be able to donate it to help premature babies

Need help?
