Re: Rh- with positive antibody screen pp...

yes, the shot is for cases like mine, but after 4 births, this is the only 1 to come back positive, so i feel worried. my midwife (cnm) did say that they see false positives relatively frequently, hence the retest at 6 months pp. Mostly I was just wondering if anyone on here had the 72 hour test come back a false positive, as I have never b4 heard of that being common.

OP, really sorry about your friend. I am against vaccines as prophylaxis, but in the case of an rH- mommy, the shot really is a blessing of modern medicine.

The negative blood type is becoming more rare, so much so that I have heard/ read that it should disappear within 2 generations.
