My name is avinash. My blood group is B+ and my wife has O-. My wife is 6 week pregent. please advice me what should be I take care in this situation.

Hi nothing much as of now, just let the doctor know that mother's blood group is negative. Around 7 months there will be a blood test done, once the baby is born and if the baby has positive blood group (99.9% it will be positive as your blood group is positive) they will give your wife Anti D injection, this is to make sure the next pregnancy is not affected ( if anti d is not given the next baby will have severe jaundice). So discuss with your doctor about all this. I too have negative blood groups and my baby's group is positive.

If the baby 's blood rh factor differs from mother then she will be given few injections keep your doctor about the mother's blood group
