If jaundice is caused by the child and mother not having the same blood type.so now my question is does RhoGAM injection helps to prevent jaundice at the birth of the baby?

Rhogam injection is to prevent complications against next pregnancy anytime a rhesus negative mother delivers a rhesus positive baby. There is no risk to the mother or the baby , but to prevent risk against the next pregnancy.
Anti D injection otherwise called Rhogam is for Rhesus negative women WITHIN THE FIRST 72 HOURS OF DELIVERING A RHESUS POSITIVE baby to prevent jaundice and other problems in the next baby. It is not usually given to pregnant women but after delivery or pregnancy loss.
