Thank you for your query.

You shall require and Anti-D injection after your delivery if the new born is Rh positive. You require tetanus vaccination which shall be given to you at the relevant time by your obstetrician.

If you had an abortion in 2008, kindly go through your documents of that period and you may find that you must have been given the Anti-D injection. In case you were not given then kindly inform your obstetrician who shall review the case.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction. Feel free to update us with any information that you may like to update us with.
