What happens if parents have opposite blood group?
Rh disease occurs during pregnancy. It happens when the Rh factors in the mom’s and baby’s blood don’t match. If the Rh negative mother has been sensitized to Rh positive blood, her immune system will make antibodies to attack her baby.
What parent blood types are not compatible?
When a mother-to-be and father-to-be are not both positive or negative for Rh factor, it’s called Rh incompatibility. For example: If a woman who is Rh negative and a man who is Rh positive conceive a baby, the fetus may have Rh-positive blood, inherited from the father.
Can 2 parents have a baby with a blood type that is not the same as either parents?
Yes, a child is able to have a different blood type than both parents.

What happens if one parent is O positive and the other O negative?

Should gender of the donor and recipient be matched in blood transfusion?
An emergency blood transfusion mandates matching of the blood types so that the donor and the recipient are compatible in their blood types. There is no other matching between the blood bag and the recipient – race, ethnicity, religion, gender etc. A new study however finds that gender of the donor and recipient should be matched.

When this occurs, the mother’s blood cells develop antibodies that can attack the newborn’s blood cells and cause jaundice. The risk of this is highest near or during delivery. A-B-O incompatibility occurs when: the mother is type O and the baby is B, A, or AB.
Can a baby get a blood transfusion?
In rare cases, if the incompatibility is severe and a baby is in danger, the baby can get special blood transfusions called exchange transfusions either before birth (intrauterine fetal transfusions) or after delivery. Exchange transfusions replace the baby’s blood with blood with Rh-negative blood cells.
What percentage of donors to blood transfusions are pregnant?
Among the donors, only 6 percent were women who had been pregnant before they had donated the blood used for the transfusion. A further 6 percent of women had never been pregnant before donation of the blood. In the study population a total of 3,969 blood recipients, or 13 percent deaths occurred during the study.
