Haemolytic disease and the rheasus blood group

    Haemolytic disease and the rheasus blood group....

    Why do you get haemolytic disease in a baby ( not first baby) if the mother is Rh- and her anti D antibodies cross the placenta, yet it is fine to tranfuse Rh- blood to a Rh+ recipient, which will also contain anti D antibodies?

    Thanks in advance. :wink:
