In the 24 hour period following a full term birth, what would it mean if the baby had "multiple variable decelerations" of the heart?

In the 24 hour period following a full term birth, what would it mean if the baby had "multiple variable decelerations" of the heart?

Can be normal.: This means that while your baby was on a monitor the heart rate was slowed below a baseline rate. These are temporary drops in heart rate. We worry about them because they can be signs of infection, breathing problems or heart problems. They can be common in premature infants but if your baby is full term without any fevers, breathing problems, or feeding problems they can be normal variability. ...Read more

If my 2nd son had hemolytic disease of the newborn, what are the chances the rest of my babies will as well?

If my 2nd son had hemolytic disease of the newborn, what are the chances the rest of my babies will as well?

Depends: Hemolytic disease of the newborn, which is due to rh or ABO incompatibility, happens when the newborn's blood type is incompatible with the mother's, and the mother has passed antibody to the baby in utero. In ABO disease, the mother must be type o and the baby either a or b. In rh disease, the mother must be rh- and the baby rh+. So, subsequent risk depends on the fetus' blood type. ...Read more
