Hi Mummyfirst
didn't want to leave your post unanswered, sorry for your sister.
I'm not too sure about rhesus neg, but think you do need anti d if blood type 0-

She probably does need some iron tablets or even injection. Does she have follow up with dr, i think she should after hemorrhage.

i think anti d has to be given when the pregnancy continues,not in these circumstances, but i might be wrong, certainly worth her mentioning it. has she been prescribed any iron supplements? she can take spatone , with orange juice, avoiding tea and coffee as that interferes with iron absorption.. apricots, dark green leafy veg & dark chocolate also good iron boosters. and she must rest and take care of herself.

this suggests she might need anti d

so, i was not correct, it would seem. this link would suggest anti d should be given.

she should get advice on this from her GP or MW or someone qualified, ASAP

I am RH- and have been told by my doctor (actually by multiple doctors) that anytime there is any bleeding during a pregnancy (or if there is a miscarriage) I have to have the anti D injection.

im rh neg and after my mc i was told that you only need the injection if your 12 weeks pregnant or more. hope that helps.
