Are you pregnant? Then you could save someone’s life. How? Simply by donating the blood from your umbilical cord and placenta after you give birth.
It’s totally risk-free for you and your baby. And it won’t interfere with your delivery, afterbirth or birth plan in the slightest.
We can currently collect cord blood in eight hospitals in Birmingham, Manchester, London, Nottingham and Leicester.
• Birmingham Women’s Hospital (until 31 March)
• Saint Mary's, Manchester
• King’s College Hospital in London
• Leicester Royal Infirmary
• Leicester General Hospital
• Nottingham City Hospital (until 28 February)
• Queen's Medical Centre in Nottingham (until 28 February)
• The Royal Free Hospital in London (until 31 March)
At the moment you can only donate if you’re giving birth at one of these hospitals.
‘I would definitely donate again. It’s a beautiful thing to do and so wonderful to have saved a life.’
Winifred, who donated her cord blood to Anthony Nolan
