All About Antibodies helps women advocate for their babies. We do this by providing information to moms so they can better understand their disease; increasing understanding of alloimmunization; and raising public awareness about alloimmunization.
We are empowering women to be partners in their prenatal care by sharing information so that they can make educated, informed care decisions for themselves and their children. Unfortunately because this is a rare disease, many babies are injured or die preventable deaths due to poor care practices. When a mother is educated about her disease and knows what the medical literature says should be happening in her care, she can advocate for the right monitoring and treatment. All About Antibodies believes in sharing information today to save the lives of tomorrow.
All About Antibodies Empowering women to be partners in their prenatal care. Sharing information today to save the lives of tomorrow.
“Empowering women to be partners in their prenatal care is essential. At the end of the day, that mother is the one who lives with the results of her care, whether that was the appropriate monitoring/treatment according to the medical literature, or if that care resulted in the loss of her child. At All About Antibodies, we are sharing information today to save the lives of tomorrow.”
