Does the mom suffer any effects of ABO incompatibility?

In brief: No

The maternal antibodies that cross the placenta react with the fetus' blood, causing hemolysis (blood breakdown) in utero or soon after birth.
The baby does not have a mature immune system, so cannot mount a clinically significant response that would affect the mother. Mothers of course suffer emotionally along with their babies, but there is no medical suffering for the mother.
