You have to take care of Rh isoimmunization. For this,you have to take a coombs test first and then you have to take anti-D injection at 28 weeks gestation and again at the time of delivery on the basis of report.

In case you hae even a single episode of bleeding, then also, you should take this injection. This is given to protect your future babies from jaundice and other serious congenital blood disorders.
