Miscarriage/pregnancy loss

My very close friend recently lost her baby at 21weeks.
She went for her 20 week scan to be told that they thought the baby had Spina Bifida. She had to go back the following week to be re scanned and was told that the baby had died. She delivered 2 days later.

She has a review on 12th May with hosp consultant, but asked our GP to let her know if she found anything out 1st.
She went to GP on Thurs expecting to be told that baby had spina bifida or hydrocephalus.

She has been told that her and her husband have incompatible blood - ISOIMMUNE NEONATAL THROMBOCYTOPENIA and that the chances of re occurance are 50-80%.

They have a little girl aready who appears to be fine.

Has anyone heard of this, and more importantly, is there anything that can be done. I am in the dark about immune issues, but someone may know something on here!

Many thanks.
