The most serious problem associated with fetal distress is the baby’s inability to begin breathing on his or her own. The medical professionals in the room must be in full control of monitoring the situation and prepared to act immediately with emergency measures. Every second the brain goes without oxygen can result in brain damage or death of the infant.
