In brief: Low baseline FHR

Low fetal baseline heart rates are usually diagnosed when the rate drops below 120 beats per minute consistently and stays there.
sometimes it is temporary, and sometimes it represents a fetal oxygenation problem. Ask your OB MD, who knows your care, what it exactly means in your case.
