In brief: I assume Rh?

If you are rh negative and your partner is rh positive then you are trying to make antibodies against your baby.
This is somewhat dose dependent so if you had a prior child, abortion, or miscarrige you are sensitized. Normally, after delivery, get medication to kill any rh positive cells in your body. So the major risk is if you had a prior pregnancy and did not get the medication.
