Women who poses negative blood group face some problems at the time of pregnancy.
Mostly there won't be any issues for the first pregnancy and An Dose of "Rhogam" -An injection has to be given after the first delivery, this is to avoid a disease called Erythroblastosis fetalis, which is hemolytic anemia in the fetus or neonate caused by transplacental transmission of maternal antibodies to fetal RBCs. The disorder usually results from incompatibility between maternal and fetal blood groups, often Rh0(D) antigens.
