|HOW DOES RhoGam Ultra-Filtered Plus WORK?
RhoGAM® Ultra-Filtered Plus is a sterile solution that contains antibodies to the Rh factor. The antibodies are derived from human plasma. When RhoGam Ultra-Filtered Plus is injected into the muscle of an Rh-negative mother, these antibodies circulate in her immune system and protect against any Rh-positive red blood cells that may have entered her bloodstream. Her immune system then sees no need to take further action.

I'm still on the fence about whether to get the prenatal Rhogam this time - my midwife actually doesn't routinely do it, unless there's some reason to, like trauma. Definitely get it if there's some injury that might cause blood mixing, though!
Now, on the other hand, I got two prenatal Rhogam shots with my DS (one routinely, one after an external version, as well as a postnatal one), because I didn't know any reason to consider skipping it. And he was just fine, very smart, and no jaundice that wouldn't be explained by the bruising he got during his exit.
