Yes, or the father's blood type. The main concern is if the mother is rH negative. She could be any type (A, B, AB, or O) but if the type is also negative and her baby is positive then her blood could build up antibodies against the baby's blood and cause the baby to be anemic or some other problems. There is an injection a mom who is rh negative can get called rhogam that will protect the baby so it's no big deal, it's just another reason that prenatal care is so important. I am rh neg and got a shot after my amniocentesis. I'll get another one at 28 weeks and another after delivery, in case I get pregnant again.Sorry to go on, but I figured any knowledge shared is good, you know? :)
