If you don't know the babys father, how do you check the Rh factor of the baby when you are Rh negative?

In brief: After delivery

The baby's blood type will be determined shortly after birth.
You will receive a Rhogam injection around 28 weeks of pregnancy. If the baby is rh positive, you will receive another dose before you leave the hospital. If the baby is rh negative, nothing further needs to be done.
