For thousands of years, Rh- mothers have been giving birth to their children and there were no problems with blood mixing. The issue of blood mixing has surfaced only recently and appears to be related to medical interventions that traumatize the womb. Any procedure that involves penetrating the womb with a sharp object is an issue because this can cause bleeding. The bleeding is what leads to the blood mixing and is what causes a mother to mount an antibody response to her own baby.
The following is a short list of medical procedures that can contribute to an Rh- mother developing antibodies against her own child.
- Fetal blood screening
- Chorionic villus sampling (CVS)
- Ultrasound (can cause bleeding from fetal vessels into maternal circulation)
A mother who has had a prior blood transfusion, prior abortion and/or a prior miscarriage involving a D&C or other surgical procedure that involves scraping the uterus has an increased chance of developing antibodies against her future children.
Every one of these invasive procedures is an iatrogenically-induced trauma to the womb and puts Rh- mothers and their babies at risk.
The medical system itself is THE problem and their solution is deadly. The Rhogam shot is a mixture of OTHER WOMEN"S BLOOD!!! These are women that developed an antibody response to their own babies. Putting a mixture of other people's blood into your own body is likely to cause autoimmune problems as well as microchimerism. Cells from genetically different individuals remain in the mother’s body and cause confusion in the immune system. The foreign Rh antibodies can cause a negative immune response in either or both mother and baby.
Additionally, the rhogam shot contains dangerous heavy metals that can lead to neurological problems in both mother and baby. These metals include both mercury and aluminum -- both well known neurotoxins. The shot also contains polysorbate 80 which is known to cause infertility. According to one source, 62% of autistic children have mothers that were given Rhogam during pregnancy.
What the medical system is offering is deadly and highly toxic. Say NO to their deadly interventions and avoid them as much as possible during pregnancy and beyond.

Rhogam and Pregnancy: Stealth Mercury Assault
There have been far too many moms at my seminars the last 3 months reacting with alarm, surprise and anger to my cautioning them regarding giving Rhogam during pregnancy. As you can guess, these moms received the rhogam injections during their pregnancy and are now caring for neurologically injured children. They were never aware that these shots could be harmful to their fetus. It is frightening to contemplate how many mothers are getting these shots while pregnant without realizing the potential for fetal neurological damage. What's the deal?
Rhogam is a human gamma globulin (antibodies) directed against the Rh positive factor of blood. It is given to Rh negative mothers who give birth to Rh positive babies. The shot is designed to prevent these moms from becoming sensitized to the baby, rh+ blood. Once the mom becomes sensitized to this rh factor, there is the possibility of mom's immune system destroying the red blood cells of her next child. Historically, babies born after mom's immune system destroyed their blood cells acquire hemolytic disease of the newborn (HDN). 1 These babies require exchange transfusions after they are born. Such transfusions can now be done in utero.
To prevent rh- moms from becoming sensitized to baby rh+ blood. Rhogam is usually given within 72 hours after the birth of the rh+ baby. 2 There is a likelihood of baby blood, only 15 ml is needed, mixing with mom's blood during the birth process when the placental membrane breakdown. During pregnancy there is no mixing of mother's blood with baby blood. Giving mom rhogam after the baby's birth is sufficient to reduce the risk of HDN in her next child to about 1-2%. Rhogam is also indicated if the mom has an abortion, either natural or induced, or has abdominal trauma or an amniocentesis. Giving rhogam during pregnancy can reduce the risk of HDN by less than 1%. 2 It is doubtful that the slight benefit acquired by giving rhogam during pregnancy outweighs the risks to the fetus from the injection.
So what is the problem with giving the rhogam during pregnancy? The standard rhogam preparations contain the mercury compound, thimerosal. We commonly link this preservative with vaccines. Rhogam is a type of vaccine but not a vaccine directed against an infectious disease. The PDR cautions that the use of rhogam during pregnancy can have adverse effects on the fetus, 2. The high mercury content of the rhogam preparation can have serious neurological consequences on the developing fetus. Hair analysis of unvaccinated children born from mom's injected with rhogam demonstrate the presence of mercury. It is essential that these babies seek appropriate medical care to chelate and remove this mercury as soon as possible. How many babies have suffered permanent damage due to mercury toxicity from this desire to reduce the risk of HDN by less than 1% by injecting pregnant mothers?
How do we avoid damaging these children? First, mom's should question the rationale for injecting them while pregnant. Second, if rhogam administration during pregnancy is absolutely necessary then mom's should demand mercury free rhogam. Many moms report to me that their physicians blow them off when confronted with the request for mercury free rhogam or say that such a product is not yet available. The reality is that mercury-free rhogam is available in this country from Bayer Pharmaceuticals under their product name of BayRoh-D. This mercury free product has been available sine 1996. Their number is 800-468-0894.
