reading the link above about thr rhogram shot, it seems to me that if you're having a natural, noninterventive birth, you don't need the shot. it's only if you have interventions (and thus the risk of "blood mixing") that you may need the shot.
so, it seems to me that it's nothing to worry about.
it's odd that i didn't know this factually, but i did know it intuitively. recently, a woman asked me abotu the shot and i said that i felt it wasnt' necessary. she asked if i knew our blood types and all that, and i said that i didn't.
she said that it was necessary. i asked her why, and she brought up a bunch of bogus stuff like "because that's what is done." so, i said "what about before those things were done? did women and babies die from rhogram incompatiability or something? do you know?"
and then i sort of "realized" that it's not at issue. i didn't know why it wasnt' at issue, but i realized that it wasn't an issue. and i just felt good about not worrying about it.
this article gave me some good info to back that up--but it just makes sense. i mean, long before we even knew about blood types, women had babies with different blood types and i'm sure that most of them survived just dandy.
so, i wouldn't be too worried about it and i'd only get it if i went in for interventions anyway.
