In brief: It depends
Whether supraventricular tachycardia (svt) causes problems in a fetus depends on how often and for how long the fetus remains in svt, and on the rate of the svt (how fast).
Typically, if a fetus is having problems with svt, a fetal cardiac ultrasound will detect that the heart function is declining and there may be evidence for abnormal fluid collections (so called non-immune hydrops).
