quote:Originally posted by DrPhilThere is no risk to sharing the same blood type. The pregnancy risk normally associated with blood type has to do the Rh factor. A woman who is Rh negative may develop antibodies to her baby's blood if the father (and thus the baby) is Rh positive. This is easily prevented with an injection of a substance that blocks the formation of these antibodies in the mother.
