  • Muscle. Our muscles are very complex. This is special
    fibers that are bundled and bonded to the bones.

group and rhesus factor is necessary for donation, blood transfusion and
during pregnancy.

If one parent is Rh positive, and the other
rhesus negative blood the same opposite can
arise from the mother and the fetus. The body of a woman will feel alien

antibodies were not developed and there was no attack on the body of the fetus. Also
the most will be done after giving birth and in case of some inevitable
surgical interventions – for example, if the mother needs
to analyze the amniotic fluid.
