Fetal Blood Disorders 

Hemolytic Disease of the Newborn (HDN):
HDN occurs when the antigens in a mother’s and baby’s bloods are incompatible. If the baby’s incompatible red blood cells cross over to the mother (either through the placenta during pregnancy or at delivery), the mother’s immune system develops antibodies that will attack the “foreign” cells in the baby.
