Is it possible for an rh-neg baby to become sensitized at birth and build up antibodies if the baby's mom has rh-positive blood?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Generally no

Maternal blood does not leak into the fetal circulation.
Babies do not have a mature immune system either are not likely to get sensitized easily, even if exposed to Rh positive cells
