Hi! New to this page. I am RH negative and husband is A+.
I did not give my babies vaccines but I did take the RH negative (rhogam.) which I wish I would have actually done my research but my babies are healthy so I'm not beating myself up as much as I should.
Anyways,I am planning to have another baby(babies.) and being RHnegative,I'm actually doing my research now.(wish I would have done it then,but I was young and didn't think about it.) I've read online that I can refuse the shot but have it before 72 hours after birth or I can deliver the baby with placenta and then cut baby off and be okay.
Now,I'm curious to know what other choices I have. Since I've already had the shots would it be okay to refuse it?Should I deliver the baby with the placenta? Or have you ever delivered the baby(cut off placenta and then delivered the placenta.) not take the rhogam and the next babies be okay? What have you personally done? I know I should probably ask my dr then,but I'd like your story(ies.)
