Prenatal medical care occurs throughout the course of all pregnancies. This includes prenatal screening directly related to transfusion medicine. Something as simple as the mother’s ABO blood group can have an effect on possible complications with the pregnancy. Prenatal screening is a tool to prevent and manage these complications.
Although prenatal care associated with transfusion medicine is familiar to obstetric and gynecologic physicians, primary care providers (PCPs) may not be as familiar. In Newfoundland and Labrador, it is common in rural settings that PCPs provide the main prenatal care. This module will provide some extra guidance to PCPs in these settings.
