Routine Antenatal Anti-D prophylaxis is available to pregnant women who have a rhesus negative blood group at 28 and 34 weeks of pregnancy. Anti-D immunoglobulin is a blood product administered in two doses at our Pharmacy after a consent process is undertaken with your midwife. You will need to get a blood test to check for any unusual antibodies prior to our pharmacy on the same day as your blood test.
Your midwife or LMC will talk you through the process.
