Perinatal testing programs have two main purposes:

  1. Detect the presence of any IgG antibody (at an early stage in pregnancy) that could cause HDFN in order to identify, monitor, and treat the infant as soon as possible.
  2. Determine which women are candidates for RhIg to prevent the production of anti-D.
