Similarly, what happens if anti D is not given?

What might happen if I don't have the anti-D injection? If you do not have the anti-D injection, it is possible that you will produce anti-D antibodies. If you become pregnant again and the baby is Rhesus-positive the anti-D antibodies might enter the baby's circulation and attack its blood.

What is the anti d injection made of?

Anti-D is made from a part of the blood called plasma that is collected from donors who have large amounts of anti-D antibodies. It is only from this specific collection of donors that anti-D can be produced: other immunoglobulins do not contain anti-D antibodies.
