Welcome! You can help other families dealing with alloimmunization and HDFN. Moms repeatedly say that hearing what other families went through is one of the biggest blessings. It doesn’t matter if you have anti-D, anti-E, anti-S, anti-M, or a more rare antibody like anti-Lea or anti-PP1PK, you can help. There are so many scary things on the internet that moms see when they search for “anti-K antibodies in pregnancy,” but it doesn’t have to be that way. In reality women can have babies who were unaffected by HDFN, who had mild cases of HDFN (only needed phototherapy), or who needed transfusions after birth. There are also families whose stories include intrauterine transfusions (IUTs) to correct fetal anemia, and some families who have lost their precious baby. All stories are important. Whatever your story involved, if you’ve had antibodies during pregnancy, you can help other families by opening a window into what it was like for you and your family. You can provide hope, encouragement, and tips to help make someone else’s journey a little bit easier.
