In brief: Potentially.
Persistent, chronic, severe oligohydramnios leads to pulmonary hypoplasia (small and maldeveloped lungs) that can prove lethal postnatally.
Less extreme oligohydramnios is much more common and is typically a problem for labor - not postnatally if your obstetrician is competent.
