    Anti-D(Rh0) immunoglobulin should be administered immediately or within
    72 h of any sensitising episode during abortion, miscarriage or giving birth
    to a rhesus-positive foetus. It prevents a rhesus-negative mother from forming
    antibodies to rhesus-positive cells that may pass into the maternal circulation.
    It is intended to protect any subsequent child from haemolytic disease. It is
    available as an injection.
