Hello Armendo Chandra,
Mothers with a rhesus negative blood type who are married to a partner with rhesus positive and want to have children, can have a child with rhesus positive. If the mother contains a rhesus positive fetus, part of the fetal blood circulating to the mother's body will be recognized as an antigen, something foreign, so that the mother's body will form antibodies to the antigen. In the second and subsequent pregnancies, generally the mother-fetal rhesus incompatibility causes fetal symptoms. Symptoms that can appear in the form of anemia in infants born are mild to severe, fetal hydrophy, and fetal death.
Treatment for rhesus incompatibility is by administering Rho (D) immunoglobulin before 28 weeks' gestation and immediately after delivery. Planning before pregnancy in mothers with rhesus negative is needed carefully. Usually for the first pregnancy because the mother's body has just formed antibodies, the pregnancy can take place normally. Careful planning is needed especially in the second pregnancy and so on. A comprehensive examination and further discussion can be done with an obstetrician. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
