In brief: Depends on variables

The seizure does not effect baby directly but could do so indirectly.
If the seizure affected the mom's blood oxygen content by dropping it for an extended period it could impair babies blood oxygen any other metabolic change could also be transferred, but such would require a prolonged event. Seizures that are brief and or do not impair mom's breathing seldome produce any problems.
