  • No, and you can't if you're breastfeeding, at least that's what I was told years ago when my Mom was needing it...

  • not that i know of. i mean your kinda already "donating" blood to your baby. LOL but because of the nutrition that a baby takes from you I wouldn't think it would be safe

  • No you can't. I tried to go with my mom and donate when I was pg with my daughter and she said not to bother because they don't allow pg women to donate.
