I am rhesus negative and the dad is positive. My health trust doesn't offer anti-D at 28 and 34 weeks. I am afraid I may become sensitised to rhesus. Is there anything I can do?

The majority or European and US health providers now give anti-D routinely in the third trimester to rhesus negative mums. This is given as a 'one off' at 32 weeks or as two injections at 28 and 34 weeks, and will slightly reduce the risk of sensitisation. It is something we would definitely recommend-first check once again that your health trust definitely doesn't provide it, if not ask why not! If this fails, you may have to pay for the injection yourself.
