Rh Negative Blood Birth Injury

Rh Negative Blood Birth Injury

Rh Negative RH Factor

Blood types matter, particularly during pregnancy and childbirth. The Rh factor — a protein attached to red blood cells genetically — may or may not be present in a mother’s (or surrogate’s) blood. When the Rh factor is present, blood is referred to as Rh positive; when it is not, blood is referred to as Rh negative. Special considerations are needed in the case of Rh negative mothers or surrogates in order to avoid Rh negative blood birth injuries in infants as well as mothers and surrogates.

Knowing a mother’s or surrogate’s blood type is the first step. If a mother or surrogate has Rh negative blood and the baby she is carrying is Rh positive, there is Rh incompatibility, which can potentially lead to anemia and serious injury to the infant. Problems can occur during testing, accidents, labor, or in other instances when the baby’s blood and the mother’s or surrogates blood combine. General preventive treatment is a vaccination with Rh immunoglobulin during pregnancy and after delivery for the mother or surrogate. Failure to properly assess blood type or provide Rh immunoglobulin when needed can result in an Rh negative blood birth injury in an infant. It can also cause future blood-related problems in mothers and surrogates.

Parents and families whose infants have suffered an Rh negative blood birth injury due to provable medical malpractice negligence not only seek valid answers to their many questions, but also helpful direction and effective assistance.
