In brief: Many causes.

Bradyarrhythmias (heart block, hypothyroidism, drugs) can lower the fetal heart rate persistently, however the most common reason is cord or placental accidents that threaten the fetal well-being.
Your obstetrician and/or perinatologist should be able to help you avoid this problem.
