Dear upasana
Sometimes if a woman is pregnant with a Rhesus positive baby, and she is Rhesus negative, then soemthing called Rhesus (Rh) Incompatibility can occur. This means that you may produce antibodies against the foetus' blood and complications can occur.
It is important that the hospital where you are checking Antinatal care and birth your baby is aware of your rhesus negative blood, so they can test baby’s blood after the birth (from the placenta) to discover baby’s blood type. Should your baby have positive blood, you can choose to be given an “anti-D” injection within a couple of days following the birth. This prevents antibodies from forming.
Consult your regular Antinatal care doctor about this about upcoming complication with you
