I have an antibody called anti E  it comes in two forms big E and Little E. I have to have bloods every 2 weeks to make sure it stays low if it gets high there is a high risk of baby anemia and/or jaundice.
My partner has had to do a blood grouping to have out two blood types compared to test for how bad they could both get
