A female asked:

Can mold affect my unborn child?

Curious question: Your unborn child is in a cocoon of tissues that wall off any intrusion during development.The only access to the fetus is trough the blood,filtered by the placenta. No agent,including mold,that is not traveling though your blood can get to baby. If you were to have some sort of bad allergic response to mold, it might stress baby, but I can't see where any chance exposure you have will do anything

A 21-year-old female asked:

If the father of an unborn child is Rh negative what does that affect?

No problem: As far as blood grouping goes, an rh negative has no effect on the unborn child's potential for jaundice or related issues.(differs from the mom where it is a big deal).
