Mother has type a+ blood, baby had type o+ blood... Blood mixed during birth. Can this result in ABO incompatibility? Baby didn't have any jaundice.
Unlikely: They are both positive. The. Positive represents a protein on the blood cell, thus the mother will not have an allergic reaction to that part, the rh factor protein part. There is a chance for allergies to other parts of the cell making something anti, just not anti -rh. Usually doesn't and not a big deal generally. It is mostly in moms with an rh neg cell that gets infused with rh pos blood. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
AB+ foetus: No reason an ab+ foetus cannot survive, especially if the mother is also rh positive. If the mother is rh negative the problem would only arise if she had a previous rh positive baby and was not treated with a medicine called Rhogam during pregnancy and immediately after delivery. Treating a pregnant rh negative woman with Rhogam prevents her body from reacting against the growing baby. ...Read more

What happens if the hospital puts type a blood in a patient that has type b blood are different bloods compatible?
There : There are 4 basic blood types: a, b, ab, or o. Additionally, each blood type is either rh-positive or rh-negative. If you need a blood transfusion, there needs to be a match between your blood type and the transfusion blood type. People with type o blood are called universal donors because most people can receive type o blood. People with type ab blood are called universal recipients because usually they can receive a transfusion of the other blood types. A person with type a blood can donate blood to a person with type a or type ab blood and can receive blood from a person with type a or type o blood. A person with type b blood can donate blood to a person with type b or type ab and can receive blood from a person with type b or type o. A person with type ab blood can donate blood to a person with type ab and can receive blood from any of the blood types. A person with type o blood can donate to anyone and can receive blood from a person who has type o blood. If the blood types are not matched than antibodies in your body will attack the blood that has been transfused into you and you can become quite ill. If a person with blood type b receives a transfusion of type a blood, the blood cells may clump together and cause a serious reaction. If incompatible blood types are mixed it can cause a fatal reaction. ...Read more
The hospital blood bank now will only transfuse o- or o+ for preemies. They will not use the matched blood. Why?
Mom made antibodies?: The red blood cells should be group o or other ABO group-compatible with the infant and mother, rh-negative or rh-identical with the infant, and lack red blood cell antigens to which the mother has made alloantibodies. So, if mom made antibodies against a or b, some of those antibodies may be in the baby's blood plasma (and would react with transfused a, b, or ab blood cells). ...Read more
What is the meaning of borderline term pregnancy , sfd, iugr with hypothermia, will these affect the child in future?
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
What happens to the child when the mother is b+ and the father is a- and no anti Rh factor shot is taken?
No problem: If a mom is Rh-, the small amount of fetal blood cells that might be Rh+ can get into mom's blood and trigger her immune system to reject the baby's blood creating danger for the fetus.If the mom is Rh+, her system is not bothered by the Rh- factor, so nothing happens in her.Baby's immune system has not matured enough for it to matter..so no problem with the Rh stuff. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why rhd incompatibility of the mother and fetus doesn't affect the present fetus but subsequent pregnancies?
See below: The incompatibility occurs when the mother is exposed to the blood of the new baby. This usually occurs at delivery. The mother then makes antibodies to that "foreign substance" and this can adversely affect the next pregnancy as the mother's immune system will see it as a "foreign" body and want to get rid of it. This problem is usually treatable with an injection at the birth of the first child. ...Read more

If the mother of a child has herbes type 2 dormant when pregnant with child, will the child be immune?
Not completely: If a mother delivers vaginally with her first genital outbreak, there is ~30% risk the baby could get it and have a terrible illness. If a recurrent outbreak, this drops to ~4% but suppression of outbreaks or c-section delivery before the membranes are open 4 hours can cancel the risk. Some women shed herpes without an outbreak and could pass it causing an illness that appears at about 2 wks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
