It is fairly common to be Rh-negative—15 percent of people are. Many women discover that they are Rh-negative during a pregnancy that needs to be terminated. If you are Rh-negative, we will help terminate your pregnancy and provide an injection of Rhogam for $60 that will help protect your future pregnancies.
Understanding your Rhesus (Rh) factor is important, because when a man and woman are either Rh-negative—or one is Rh-negative and the other is positive—the fetus can end up with a different status than the mother. When mothers are Rh-negative and the fetus is positive, a mother’s antibodies will attack the baby. Rhogam shots coat a fetus’s cells so that the mother’s body doesn’t recognize them, and doesn’t hurt them.
