The newborn were followed for 3 days and were watched for the development of jaundice.Mother advised to attend postnatal clinic for check-up after 6 weeks of delivery. Results: Blood group distribution of newborn: 22 were Rh negative and 226 were Rh positive.Raised antibody titre was found in one case.
