Pregnancy (rhesus negative women) - routine anti-D (review) (TA156)
Fast, easy summary view of NICE guidance on 'antenatal care'
Routine antenatal anti-D prophylaxis is recommended as a treatment option for all pregnant women who are RhD negative and who are not known to be 'sensitised'.
When a decision has been made to give routine antenatal anti-D prophylaxis, the treatment with the lowest cost should be used. This should take into account the costs of both obtaining and giving the treatment.
