Rh & ABO incompatibility is rare, however does happen on occasion. Rh and ABO incompatibility is when a pregnant woman’s blood type does not match her baby’s blood type. As a result, this may have devastating effects on the baby, such as destruction of the baby’s red blood cells. In addition, the mother's blood will make antibodies to attack foreign proteins in the baby's blood called erythroblastosis fetalis. Once the antibodies attack the baby’s red blood cells, will occur.
These types of birth injuries are preventable if diagnosed early; a doctor should be able to make a proper diagnosis if regular checkups are being made throughout your pregnancy.
