Explain the dangers of a mother being Rh- and her fetus being Rh+ and explain why usually only the second child is at risk.

When the mother is Rh- & the child is Rh+, the Rh antigens produced by the mother may cross the placenta. When the second fetus is also Rh+, the antigens are already formed, so they are much more likely to attack the fetus (risk increases with successive children).

Exactly!
Also would've liked a mention of how the blood of the fetus and the mother have a much higher chance of mixing during delivery than during the pregnancy, so after the first birth the danger would skyrocket.

Prostaglandins increase blood flow, and chemotaxis.
