Anti-D Prophylaxis in Pregnancy for Rhesus Negative Women

The rhesus factor is found on red blood cells. People who are rhesus positive have a substance known as ‘D antigen’ on the surface of their red blood cells. People who are rhesus negative do not have ‘D antigen’ on their red blood cells. Whether a person is rhesus positive or rhesus negative is determined by their genes, it is inherited from a parent.
