What if I am pregnant or become pregnant? What if I'm breastfeeding?
You can register as a potential blood stem cell donor even if you are pregnant, as long as you meet all of the other requirements. Please let us know if you are pregnant and when your due date is.
You will be blocked from donor searches during your pregnancy, until six months after your due date. After that, we will include you in searches again unless you instruct us otherwise.
You can register as a potential blood stem cell donor while breastfeeding, however, you will need to be deactivated on the register until you have stopped. It is best to wait until after you have stopped breastfeeding before registering as a potential blood stem cell donor.
If you are not breastfeeding, you need to wait until six months after your baby is born before you can register.
