In brief: Type and screen.

All donated blood are also tested for ABO and rh groups, along with the presence of red blood cell antibodies.
This is known as a type and screen. Typing of blood the ABO and rh status. The sample is then screened for any alloantibodies that may react with blood.

In brief: See below

1. Wait until the bay is born, then test blood.
2. Guess based on parents ABO type. I would go for #1. Good luck.
