If you're Rh positive, no action is needed.

If you're Rh negative and the baby's father is Rh positive, there's a potential for your body to produce antibodies that could harm your baby. Talk with your health care provider about scheduling an Rh immune globulin injection during your pregnancy and make sure you remind your health care team of your Rh status during labor.

Your reminders will help your health care team provide the best possible care during labor and delivery.
