In brief: No
It is important to keep blood flow to the uterus to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the baby.
Anemia, or a low blood count is a common complication of pregnancy. It is not advised to donate blood during pregnancy to avoid complications from anemia that may happen from removing your important blood volume.
