RhD negative

Has anyone else been told they are negative when the baby is positive? Also has anyone had this before? It’s making me anxious/worry about doing certain things as I can’t stand needles 😂

Yes. If your baby is positive you'll need the anti-d injection around 28 weeks and after birth. But other than that you probably won't need it. The injection itself - just don't look!! It's over quickly and generally doesn't make the arm too painful afterwards x

Yes! I have a phobia of needles but you have to remember only positive things can come from the Anti D. 3 second and it's over and you've helped your baby (and any future ones) in a massive way. You've got this!

I know everyone has different experiences, but having done this twice before and about to have it again, I can honestly say I’ve found the Anti-D injections absolutely fine. I know it’s easier said than done but don’t overthink it, it takes seconds and in my experience it’s not painful, and it gives you peace of mind that you and your baby are protected x
