What happens to the child when the mother is b+ and the father is a- and no anti Rh factor shot is taken?

In brief: 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.
