Prior to 2003, Rhogam was preserved with thimerosal.  12.5 mcg per dose (unless it wasn't properly shaken, in which case, who knows how much or how little...)

The things I learn on MDC! Really. I love all the knowledge on here. I started midwifery school in 2004, so all I ever learned (and advised clients) was that Rhogam was thimerasol free. I had no idea of the shady past. Thanks for the education. Really.

The doctor who delivered my babies AT home had a very conservative protocol with rhogam. He ordered titres at each prenatal visit.  If there was a problem, rhogam WAS given.

 

At birth, a cord sample was taken. If there was a problem - mixing of blood - rhogam was given in 72 hours.

We do a cord blood sample at birth too. But it's given at 28 weeks to all Rh negative women. Insurance will not cover tires and it's really not a titre anyway, it's more like an antigen sensitivity test

But there is no thimerasol in it anyway these days.

As I understand from past reading and research, the 28 week shot is in case the mother has bled or fallen and protects the next baby, not the one the woman is presently pregnant with.

 

What am I missing here?
