What the Expert Says:

Two ways: First, ask the record room of the hospital where you were born if they have a record.  it is often done at birth from the cord blood. Second, ask your physician who may have it in her record.  Finally, you can request a repeat test from your physician. Remember, if there is an emergency and there is a need to know, blood typing and cross matching is done for safety sake by the hospital and not relied upon patient history.
