makinallkindzofgainz  you're not wrong, but I think it's better to have put O-negative because that's the preferred type of RBC for transfusion unless you've type and crossed your patient +  
mtkilimanjaro  I think fetus is O+ but if you give them that the RBCs will still be destroyed. You want to give O- as it wont get destroyed and wont affect the fetus in any way. Similar mechanism to giving platelets to someone with TTP, HUS, etc. they just get destroyed so its useless +  
tylerwill33  In utero, should give O- to avoid mom attacking again. After birth, O+ probably better. +

The mother is Rh - & fetus is Rh +

pg 397 FA 2019 Administration of anti-D IgG to Rh - pregnant mother during 3rd trimester & early postpartum period (if fetus Rh+)

Prevents maternal anti-D IgG production

anti-D IgG = O, Rh -

snripper  Not sure why you're getting downvoted, but this makes sense to me. Maybe because you're claiming that the fetus is Rh+ when it's not clearly stated? But take that away and your explanation still makes sense. +1  
j000  the question is not asking what to give to the mother. it's asking what to give to the fetus. +
