Blood donation is a process by which a blood donor voluntarily has blood drawn for storage in a blood bank for subsequent use in a blood transfusion. The process of giving blood involves screening the donor, the actual donation, and a brief recovery period.

This applies to both whole blood donations and plasmapheresis (giving of plasma only)

Blood Donation

Countless lives have been saved because of blood donation. But while donating blood is relatively uncomplicated, not every one can give blood. The following guidelines from the American Red Cross are not all inclusive, but will give you a general idea. If you suspect that you may be excluded from donating, it is important to share the information with the blood center where you go to donate. Even if you are excluded, there are things you can do to help, such as volunteering your time.

General Guidelines

in good health
at least 17 years old
weigh at least 110 pounds

How often can blood be donated?

People in good health who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate a unit of blood as often as every eight weeks. Some states may further limit the number and/or frequency of donations in a 12-month period.

Where can I donate blood?

You can donate blood at any blood bank in your city.

Cord Blood Donation Guidelines

Q: Where can I donate cord blood?

If you are interested, or someone you know is interested, in donating cord blood, look for a Cord Blood Bank or collecting hospital within or close to your community. There are only a small number of cord blood banks in the United States, so donation to a local bank is not possible in many areas.

If there is not an NMDP Cord Blood Bank in your community, refer to the Non-NMDP Cord Blood Bank list on this Web site or contact any major university hospital or medical center in your state to see if they accept cord blood donations.

Q: Are there any risks to donating cord blood?

Donating cord blood is medically safe. Donating poses no health risks to you or your baby. Donating does not affect your baby or your birth experience because the cord blood is collected after your baby is born. If you or your baby experience any complications during delivery, your doctor will not collect the cord blood.

Q: Should I store my child's cord blood?

Donating your child's cord blood or storing it for private use is a personal decision that only you can make. If you have a child with leukemia or other disease that may be treatable by transplant and you are pregnant, talk with your oncologist or pediatrician about saving your baby's cord blood.
