In brief: Pre/post delivery???

In a o- mom, prenatal care will include tests to monitor babies status.
A firstborn is unlikely to have major pbms & a shot in pregnancy can buffer any o-/+ issues.Babies who tests show changes that suggest a rh reaction in pregnancy are rarely seen any more due to these precautions. Early delivery ahd transfusions might be required in such a case to monitor anemia and jaundice.

In brief: Rh incompatibily

This is why prenatal care is very important.
A multitude of important tests are performed including a blood type. A very serious condition called rh incompatibilty can occur when the mom is rh negative and the baby, rh positive. Fortunately, this can be prevented by a Rhogam injection given to the mom on the 28th week of pregnancy and again after the baby's birth if the baby is rh positive.
