Doctor :  
if a woman who is Rh negative and a man who is Rh positive conceive a baby, there is the potential for a baby to have a health problem.
Doctor :   People with different blood types have proteins specific to that blood type on the surfaces of their red blood cells (RBCs). There are four blood types รข?? A, B, AB, and O.
Doctor :   Each of the four blood types is additionally classified according to the presence of another protein on the surface of RBCs that indicates the Rh factor. If you carry this protein, you are Rh positive. If you don't carry the protein, you are Rh negative.
