Re: Rh- with positive antibody screen pp...
This. If her baby was rh - she would NOT need the rhogam shot, even if the mama was rh- (and if she were rh+ she would never need one).

OP- I was under the impression that the 28 week shot was for such cases as yours, to prevent problems with rh factor (I'm rh- myself, and spoke with my doctor about rh factor my first appt. this pregnancy).
If you would like more children, I would speak with a doctor about the risks.
