Will this be her first pregnancy? If so, it's not an issue..

Even if she has already had a positive baby, with today's technology and monitoring, she and babe would be fine. I have 2 neg and 2 pos children and no sensitization.

What technology is available for those who become sensitized? Are there still concerns for the safety of future pregnancies?

She could have a test (indirect Coombs) to see if she has Rh antibodies. If not, there will be no issues with Rh during this pregnancy.

or isn't it?...
Some people argue that but ou will find A LOT of moms who have taken Rhogam here, myself included, who feel they made the best choice for themselves and their family and have no regrets about it. The studies sited are often from older versions of the drug, pre-2001 usually, and both my kids were born since then with mercury free versions of Rhogam.

I was told by my doctor that the Rhogam is no longer from pooled blood and is now synthetically produced (ie not a blood product). Is this true?

If her previous miscarriages were in the first world with medical care, she'll have had rhogam and be fine. It'll be just the same as if the embryos were hers and an Rh + man's.

: I did use RhoGam with each of my pregnancies, I can't say that I am 100% comfortable with that choice, but- it's what I chose. Did the mom in question have RhoGam after her miscarriages? I would *assume* she did if she hasn't read anything about it or questioned it. Most people don't argue against using it after birth or miscarriage, the main arguements are against using it while pregnant...

I had a miscarriage and even asked about RhoGham, never got the shot.
That was before I read more about it, so glad it turned out that way, but just wanted to say they don't always give it routinely for m/c.


I think it would be very simple to have the antibodies test done, and it would tell you one way or the other.

Bumping, since this still comes up often.
