In brief: See below

During labor this is unlikely.
The fetal heart rate and its variability are monitored constantly during the delivery period. If there was vasospasm of the vessels of the placenta that significantly impacted the fetus the changes in the heart rate and/or its variability would encourage a c-section before it got to the point that actual damage occurred.
