Hello,
Thanks for the query.
There is no cause for concern as far as the contact between your blood and your wife's mucosa goes.But now that she is pregnant,there is a chance of iso immunisation since she is Rh negative and your are positive.She will indeed need to take the Anti D immunoglobulin but in most cases,its given within 72 hrs of delivery.She will need regular antenatal care and also some routine blood tests done.
