QUESTION

Dear Midwife,
Suppose if my male partner and I have same blood types (for example, O positive), should I have a baby? If I am pregnant from the guy with same blood type, will I have a shot to prevent further complications? Or can't I have a baby at all?

ANSWER

If you have positive blood type, you will not need a shot to prevent complications. And any blood type can have a successful pregnancy with any other type.
