A friend has O- blood group.
She has 2 children to a previous marriage and had difficulties with each of those pg's due to antibodies in her blood.
She is now in a different long-term relationship and is pg once more. She is yet to find out if her current partner has Rh -ve blood (they suspect he does).

What are the risks if he isn't and she continues with the pg?
She was not given the anti-D after an erpc when she was younger and she should've received it, as I understand it. This was the point where she developed anti-bodies.

This will be her 5th pg (only 2 live children).
