Both non-immune hydrops fetalis (NIHF) and alloimmunization are issues that have altered dramatically because of the modern obstetric care. The routine postpartum administration of anti-D immune globulin has made a tragedy right into a rare event.
Other reasons for hydrops fetalis can frequently be managed with resulting neonatal survival. Just before efforts to achieve a subsequent pregnancy, preconception consultation is suggested to examine underlying etiology if known. The recurrence risk and control over the future pregnancies should be discussed at that time.
