The antibody screen uses a portion of the same blood sample to check your blood group again and make sure that you have not developed any red cell antibodies. This is particularly important if you are Rh negative. Although the time of greatest risk is at delivery, when a Rh negative mother may become sensitized to blood from her Rh positive baby, these women are now offered an injection of Rhogam at 28 weeks and after delivery, even if this is their first pregnancy.
