In brief: Yes

Hemolytic disease of the newborn, causing yellow skin and eyes (jaundice) with anemia, is most commonly due to a "set-up"--a blood type difference between mother and child.
Blood types are caused by genes at the ABO and other loci (rhesus being most damaging), with o type or rh negative moms making antibodies to red blood cells of a or b or rh+ fetuses (if mom is o and fetus ab, baby switched), .
