What do the results mean?
If your results were not normal, you and/or your baby may get treatment to prevent serious health problems. Examples of some abnormal results and treatment include:
- Rh incompatibility. You will receive medicine that prevents your body from making antibodies against your baby’s red blood cells.
- Infections (hepatitis, STDs, HIV). You will receive medicine to treat the infection. If you have a hepatitis B infection, your baby will get a vaccine within a few hours of birth.
- No immunity to rubella. You’ll need to avoid anyone who has rubella while you are pregnant. After your baby is born, you should get vaccinated.
If you have questions about your results, talk to your health care provider.
