6 Tips for Giving Blood: How to Prepare, Stay Safe and Enjoy the Experience

Drink plenty of water beforehand

Eat well-balanced, healthy meals – avoid junk or fast food.

Wear tops or shirts with sleeves that can be rolled up easily

Take something to occupy you while donating.

Stay around for a snack.

Most donation centers will have a hot or sugary drink for you and a snack to boost your blood and sugar levels to help you recover once you have donated blood. It is advisable to stay for a snack, so if you have any post-donation symptoms like fainting, you are in the right place. Once you leave, you can look for what to eat after donating plasma or blood. 

Take it easy post-donation.
