  • Are you doing it to make money? I would just be upfront and if they rather you didn't while you are nursing then just wait.

  • I have no idea if it would hurt or not, but I would be honest because it might be a big deal. Only they would know...

  • My understanding is that you can not donate plasma if you've been pregnant because of a protein that is in your blood, but I could be wrong.
