Mother Baby Blood Type Mismatch (Overview)

Mother Baby Blood Type Mismatch, also known as ABO incompatibility, occurs when a pregnant mother has a different blood type than the developing baby. Exposure to the baby’s blood type, either from that pregnancy or a previous sibling, causes the mothers body to develop antibodies to the blood type. The condition is dangerous as antibodies can cross the placenta and cause anemia (blood cell destruction), jaundice, or fetal hydrops in the baby.

Very different: Some babies are born with cow's milk protein allergy which they may grow out of. It can lead to blood in the stool, fussiness (gerd) or rash. Some with cows mp allergy also have soy allergy which means no milk intake for mom when nursing or a special formula for baby. Lactose intolerance happens later and is due to poor gut absorption of milk. It can lead to gassiness and loose stool. ...Read more

What can I do to get rid of a blood cloth in my neck when im also taking blood thinner and what causes them. This is what's wrong with my mother.?

Avoid catheters: Blood thinner will prevent progression of clots to larger size prevent them from breaking into pieces then going to the lung which is rare in neck dvt, they do not dissolve clots. Avoid inserting lines or catheters in the neck veins as possible and if needed they have to be removed as soon as possible. ...Read more

Talesemia is genetic blood deasease, what the chances of my children to get talesemia if their mother is a carrier and I'm not?

Talesemia is genetic blood deasease, what the chances of my children to get talesemia if their mother is a carrier and I'm not?

Could be carriers: Carriers have one normal paired with one carrier (altered) gene. During the formation, there is 50% chance that either will make it into the egg. When paired with your normal gene at conception you have those two possibilities. So with every pregnancy, you have equal risk of producing a carrier child or one with normal genes. ...Read more

What are the symptoms that develop if there is mother-baby blood type mismatch?

What are the symptoms that develop if there is mother-baby blood type mismatch?

Mismatch: Clinically, it is the most important blood group system after abo. The commonly-used terms rh factor, rh positive and rh may lead to the production of maternal igg anti-d antibodies which can pass through the placenta. This is of particular importance to d negative females at or below childbearing age, because any subsequent pregnancy may be affected by the rhesus d hemolytic disease of the newbo. ...Read more

Can baby be Coombs+ if the mother, father and baby are all A+ blood type?

Can baby be Coombs+ if the mother, father and baby are all A+ blood type?

Sure: The Coombs test (named for a Professor Robin Coombs, a British immunologist) looks for certain types of antibodies floating in the serum or attached to one's red blood cells. The antibodies can be related to "minor blood types" instead of the major ABO/Rh blood groups. If so, all three people can be A+ blood type, and still have a positive Coombs test in the baby. ...Read more

What happens if two parents who's blood types are both b produce a child that has blood type o, what can you say about the parent's genotypes?

What happens if two parents who's blood types are both b produce a child that has blood type o, what can you say about the parent's genotypes?

Homework problem: Probably both parents have one copy of the B allele and one copy of the O allele. There are other exceptional situations -- each parent may carry Bombay, which when inherited from each parent masks B. And there are some weak alleles. Enjoy your studies. ...Read more

If one parent belongs to b blood type and another parent belongs to o blood type, is it possible for them to have a child with a blood type?

ABO blood typing is: Not sufficient to prove or disprove paternity or maternity because of possible testing difficulties. If concerned, consult your doctor. Chromosomal microarrays can be done on buccal swabs from parents ; infant by the lineagen company in salt lake city, ut, (801) 931-6224. If one parent has b blood type ; the other 0, one would expect their infant to have either b or o blood type. ...Read more

What happens if two parent with o positive blood types have a child with b negative blood type?

What happens if two parent with o positive blood types have a child with b negative blood type?

Not possible: It is possible for the child to be rH negative if both parents are hybrid rH positive (one positive and one negative rH gene), but if they are both type O can only have type O children. Either one of them is not the biologic parent, or someone's blood typing is a mistake. Someone had to give that B gene. ...Read more

Both parent has A blood type, can they have child with o blood type?

Both parent has A blood type, can they have child with o blood type?

Yes indeed: Blood cells show A or B antigens - if neither are present the blood type is O. A parent will AO or AA genes will be Type A. Since the child gets one gene from each parent - if both parents are AO and both pass the O to the child -- then the child will be O. The options are AA, AO, OA and finally 1 out of 4 gets the OO - and is type O. pretty cool stuff huh? ...Read more

Which blood type in the mother can only have children with type o father?

Which blood type in the mother can only have children with type o father?

All of them: The issue of blood type is not important when selecting a mate. Years ago we had issues with RH negative mothers, which is still a problem if the pregnancy is not monitored, but the Rh problem has become unimportant after discovery of meds that could cancel out the problem if used on time. Mom or dad can be any blood type and we can deal with it. ...Read more

A mother has a as her blood type and her husband is o. But their daughter's blood type is b. Is that possible?

Clearly yes....: ....It's possible for the baby to be b. But the husband isn't the father. This assumes that you have all the blood types right. Before you stir any pots, I would make very, very sure that the mother and her husband are the blood types you think they are. If mom is actually a or ab, or dad is b, then he could be the father. The baby has to get the b type from someone. ...Read more
