Dear Dr.Wati, mbak luluk n Sps..

Hari selasa besok dikantor saya akan ada acara donor darah, rencananya saya
mau ikut berpartisipasi setelah bbrp tahun vakum.

Tapi 3 bulan lalu saya sempat ditolak oleh petugas PMI dengan alasan masih
menyusui, begitu jg dgn tmn saya krn kebetulan sedang datang bulan.

Yg ingin saya tanyakan apakah ibu yg sedang menyusui dan wanita yg sedang
(maaf..haid) tidak boleh mendonorkan darahnya..?

Sebagai informasi, anak saya sekarang berumur 15 bulan dan masih minum asi +
susu UHT.

Mohon masukan dari Sps semua dan tentunya dari mbak luluk yg pakarnya
per’ASI’an. Trims.

Dear Mbak Yosie,

Dulu dah pernah dibahas di sehat.
Utk ibu menyusui, saya posting ya artikel dari Lalecheleague (LLL) suatu
organisasi internasional yg khusus membahas ASI, laktasi & menyusui ttg
boleh tidaknya ibu menyusui mendonorkan darahnya.
Uniknya bahasan boleh atau gak ibu menyusui mendonorkan darahnya betul2
Ada ahli laktasi yg membolehkan termasuk juga Palang Merah Amerika
(American Red Cross).
Tapi banyak juga ahli dari LLL yg membolehkan jika sudah lewat masa ASI
Ada juga ahli laktasi yg menyetujui dg catatan sang ibu bukan penderita
Tapi most ahli laktasi menyarankan utk memeriksakan diri & berkonsultasi
dg dokter sebelum melakukan dnor darah.
Krn kondisi tiap ibu berbeda.
Tapi kondisi tsb berlaku utk MOSTLY utk ibu2 yg menyusui eksklusif.
Rasanya mbak ochie gak masalah jika mau mendonorkan darah.

Nah ketentuan ini beda buanget dg ketentuan PMI (entah kenapa).
Mungkin mereka menyarankan utk ibu menyusui eksklusif yg gak boleh. Entahlah.

Nah utk wanita yg mens ternayta semua literatur juga membolehkan dg
catatan : bukan di hari2 pertama yg deras2nya dan tidak mengalami kram
akibat mens.
Tapi kalo di PMI rasanya gak boleh ya 😦

Ok saya repost ya.
Can a Lactating Woman Donate Blood?

Whether to donate blood is a decision that is best left up to the
individual. Opinions vary as to whether it is a good idea. The American Red
Cross says this about potential donors, on their web page at

defer while pregnant
defer 6 weeks after uncomplicated third trimester or term delivery or
cesarean section
defer 12 months if delivery required a blood transfusion
accept nursing mothers
La Leche League's sources differ in their opinions on blood donation for
breastfeeding mothers. Dr. Gregory White does not recommend it. Dr. Jack
Newman says any otherwise eligible mother who is not anemic can donate
blood. The Canadian Blood Service (a division of the Red Cross) asks
breastfeeding mothers to wait six months before donating blood. LLL
recommends that mothers consult their own physicians and make an informed

If a breastfeeding mother chooses to donate blood, she needs to be very
careful to stay hydrated. Human milk is 87% water, and a blood donation
takes 16 ounces of blood from the body. This is a lot of liquid to replace.
All blood donors are cautioned to eat a substantial meal before donating
blood and drink large quantities of water afterward. After a donation,
donors are advised to avoid heavy lifting with the arm used to donate (to
prevent excessive bruising). This may be a consideration for mothers who may
not be able to avoid lifting and carrying their babies or older children.

Note to users: This list is not complete. Medical professionals are
available at each blood collection center and details of each donor's health
and activities are discussed in a confidential setting prior to blood
donation. The final determination of eligibility is made at that time. Some
donor eligibility rules are specified by the Food and Drug Administration
for every blood bank in the country. Other rules are determined by the
particular blood bank and may differ between programs. Donor eligibility
rules are intended to protect the health and safety of the donor as well as
the patient who will receive the transfusion. The criteria listed below are
provided as guidelines to assist you in determining whether you may be
eligible to be a blood donor. The guidelines listed below were last revised
on 9/14/04. There may have been some changes to these criteria since the
last revision date. The most up to date eligibility information can be
obtained by contacting the American Red Cross blood center nearest you.

To give blood for transfusion to another person, you must be healthy, be at
least 17 years old, weigh at least 110 pounds, and not have donated blood in
the last 56 days. "Healthy" means that you feel well and can perform normal
activities. If you have a chronic condition such as diabetes or high blood
pressure, "healthy" also means that you are being treated and the condition
is under control.

Other aspects of each potential donor's health history are discussed as part
of the donation process before any blood is collected. Each donor receives a
brief examination during which temperature, pulse, blood pressure and blood
count (hemoglobin or hematocrit) are measured.

Making donations for your own use during surgery (autologous blood donation)
is considered a medical procedure and the rules for eligibility are less
strict than for regular volunteer donations.

Pregnancy, Nursing

Persons who are pregnant are not eligible to donate. Wait 6 weeks after
giving birth. Acceptable if you are nursing, or recently had an elective
---------------------------------------------------- seperti


Women may donate during their period if feeling well on the day of donation.

Pregnancy And Menstrual Period

Females should not donate blood during pregnancy.

They can donate after 6 weeks following a normal delivery and when they
are not breast feeding.

Females should not donate blood if they are having heavy menstrual flow or
menstrual cramps.r
