Brief description Blood group incompatability between a mother and her unborn baby can result in the production of antibodies that can damage the baby's red blood cells, causing anaemia. Treatment involves a procedure to transfuse blood to the baby while in the mother's uterus, which often needs to be repeated several times during a pregnancy. This randomised trial will assess if an ultrasound examination can be used to time second or subsequent fetal transfusions, and the impact this has on infant health.
