Rh Incompatibility

Summarized by Plex Health
Last Updated: 02 May 2022

There are four significant blood group: A, B, O, and abdominal muscle. Rh element is a protein on red cell. When you're pregnant, blood from your infant can cross into your bloodstream, particularly throughout delivery. Your body will respond to the baby's blood as a foreign substance if you're Rh-negative and your child is Rh-positive. Rh incompatibility might cause issues in later maternities, if the baby is Rh-positive. The antibodies can go across the placenta and attack the infant's red cell. The infant might get Rh disease, a serious condition that can cause a severe type of anemia. Blood tests can inform whether you have Rh factor and whether your body has made antibodies. Injections of a medication called Rh immune globulin can keep your body from making Rh antibodies. It can include supplements to help the body to make red blood cells and blood transfusions if therapy is required for the baby.
