Congratulations that your wife is pregnant. As for the current pregnancy is concerned, nothing needs to be done. After the baby is born, please check the blood group of the baby. If it is positive, then the mother has to be given anti-D immunoglobulin, if it is negative blood group nothing needs to be done.

Hope this helps.
