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 only collect cord blood in four hospitals in Manchester, London, and Leicester.
• Saint Mary's, Manchester
• King’s College Hospital in London
• Leicester Royal Infirmary
• Leicester General Hospital
NHS Blood and Transplant collect cord blood at six other locations. You can find out more on the NHS Blood and Transplant website here.
‘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
