So, I decided to get the prenatal Rhogam shot, after a lot of thinking. When I got to the birth center, they gave me a different brand, called RhoPhylac. I had never heard of it before! Here's the website - http://www.rhophylac.com/
It's supposed to be preservative-, latex-, and thimerosal-free, which is nice. But how did I miss knowing about this, when I've been digging up all the info I can on Rhogam for years? Has anyone else gotten this brand, or have any experience with it? I guess it's pretty much the same as Rhogam...
I'm wondering the exact same thing about anyone else receiving it...?
Thanks for sharing the link... I had not heard of it, but I haven't been pregnant in 5 years.
My main objections to the rhogam shot are not the preservatives but rather that it is made from human blood. This new one is too, of course.
I am rh- and DH is +. We will eldon card the baby at birth but unless the birth is traumatic, we won't consider the shot.
That's what I'm considering, too. And not getting it prophylactically around 28 weeks.
