Rh Negative, RhoGAM and Children With Neurological Disorders

I am sharing some info recently received from StarFire, the Network Administrator at http://www.rhnegativeblood.ning.com/, who states:

“We are wonderful resource for rh negative people, and that is all because of our members. With so many people bringing their ideas, research and personal experience into the mix, it’s kind of hard not to be a good thing- especially where rh negatives are concerned. Because of our rare type, we often have to deal with things that the general population does not. Anti- D, or RhoGam as it is popularly termed is one of those things. Most of you know that women who are rh negative and pregnant are given this injection at various times during and or/after pregnancy. It’s a hot topic in our community, which brings me to why I am sending this message.

I wanted to share a new project with you. Recently I was approached by a member who is a graduate student, and she is interested in a finding out if there is a possible relationship between the anti-D injections that many rh negatives receive during pregnancy and children with neurological disorders. Her name is Penny, and she has two children that have neurological disorders and one child that doesn’t. Penny and I have put together a survey for women who have had children that asks some basic questions designed to show whether there is a correlation, or not. The more people that respond the better!

Penny is planning on writing her final paper on what she finds out in this survey. Usually a paper for a Masters Degree is read by people that could move to do some more research on a subject. WE NEED THE RESEARCH!

I know that this is a “hot” issue in our community so, if you have had children, please take a moment and take the survey- and then please take a moment and SHARE IT! Some people say that there is not a higher incidence of neurological disorders in our children and others say that it is a tremendous increase. Let’s see if we can find out, or at least pose the question in such a way that the medical community needs to look into it further. Women of any blood group are welcome to take the survey, we encourage any women who has given birth to answer the questions.

To take the survey, click HERE http://kwiksurveys.com/online-survey.php?surveyID=LMDMFH_db2b0794, and please pass it on!

This is really important and could be a huge boost for interest in doing necessary and LONG OVERDUE research on the issues of our community.”

As I’ve mentioned in other posts, http://www.rhnegativeblood.ning.com/ is an amazing site and I highly recommend it. Please check it out if you haven’t already done so!

    I am Rh-. My first child was also Rh-. However, I did have the preventative/ routine Rhogam shot during my first pregnancy. I did not have the shot after pregnancy. (By the way, it was very hard to get an answer as to wether or not my baby was Rh-….as if it was really none of my buisness. HMmmF!! ).

    My second child is Autistic.

      Im sorry. It is of course in the interest of this study to know that my first child (and Rhogam shot) was in 1995. I also had a Rhogam shot during my second pregnancy (1998). My second pregnancy resulted in my child being Autistic. My third child is NOT Autistic. I received NO Rhogam shot during my third pregnancy (2000) , in fact I didnt visit a doctor until 9 months gestation. Im sorry to say that at this time, I do not know the blood type or Rh Factor of my second and third children.

    Hey there, You’ve done an incredible job. I’ll certainly digg it
    and personally recommend to my friends. I’m sure they’ll be benefited from this website.

    I have A negative blood. My severely autistic child is A positive. I had the Rhogram shot when I was pregnant with my severely autistic child. Could there be a link? If so, what is it?

      A while back I wrote a post “Rh Negative Mothers and Autistic Children” which includes links that I found very interesting regarding this topic. This is what I wrote. I urge you to click on the links:

      I just came across a website regarding Stephanie Cave, M.D., author of “What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Your Children’s Vaccinations”. Within this article is the following quote:

      “We found that more than 53 percent of our mothers of autistic children were Rh- negative and received an immunoglobulin preserved with thimerosal during pregnancy. In contrast, only 3 percent of our mothers with normal children were Rh- negative. This is a very significant difference, as it demonstrates an in-utero exposure to ethyl mercury; the metal from this gestational exposure can pass through the placenta to the baby.”

      I found this through a search I was doing on aluminum sensitivity and Rh negative blood (as I have such a sensitivity) and was amazed by Dr. Cave’s statement. She stated that she and her colleague treat approximately 1500 autistic children in her practice (and over 53% of the mothers of those children are Rh negative!).

      This is a link to that site: http://www.whale.to/vaccine/cave_h.html

      Another extremely interesting site linked to this same subject is:


      Read the article “Effects of Mercury Administered During Pregnancy” that discusses RhoGAM injections being given to women some time between the 16th and 20th week of pregnancy. Most of these shots contain the thimerosal to which Dr. Cave refers.

        I am RH- and also received the Rhogam Shot during the pregnancy of my second child in 1987. He was also autistic.

        I have thought about this for many years. Could there be a connection between the thimerasol and aluminum in these Rhogam vaccines and Autism. Unfortunately, I also received another vaccine after his birth. I also breast fed him. M(0y God, what have I done by allowing my OB/GYN to poison me and my unborn child and then poison me and him again( through breast feeding)? If only I had known the risk?

        My first son is normal and a father himself. My granddaughters are fine. Both sons are RH positive.

    I have read that Rh- blood doesn’t die & can be refreshed after 1,000’s of years. If this is so there shouldn’t be a problem in telling if the Shroud was Neg. or not.
    I don’t know if I could put this here or not, but = I am a mother with Rh-D- O- neg. blood & I’m just trying to make since of it all. My only child (son) is O+/-. As a child they (Doctors) use to take blood from me & tell me my blood was saving lives. By the time I was 16 they told my parents I had 3mo.s to live that my blood was killing me, & I had “Thalassemia Major”. The Doctors said I needed a transfusion, but they couldn’t find enough blood to do so in time. Not wanting to die with out having sex (LOL) I did it once & got preg. with my son. My body changed & I got better. Then right before my son was born they told me that he may be a Blue Baby or worst we both could die. Well he came out yelling & they told me he saved my life. About 8mo.s later I was In the hospital having one of my tubes removed, 9mo.s later the other one. Long story short at this point I’m 21 & they are removing everything I had left, including my spleen. After witch they told me I should be fine. That my spleen was making 3 blood cells & the extra one was eating the others & by removing it & giving me fresh blood after 3yr.s of saving for it, it should make me well. I am 61 this mo. in ’07 I had 4by-pass’s & what they called a bridge over a stint I had put in in ’99 & I just want to understand what this is all about, & why my life was so messed up. Sorry for the rant & I or you can remove this, if it shouldn’t be here. I would love some insight if you have any. Thank You!
