Urgent Question: Fetal distress secondary to cord compression

  1. Default Urgent Question: Fetal distress secondary to cord compression

    Do very little OB--filling in!

    If a healthy full term newborn is delivered via c-section because of fetal distress/cord compression, where (if anywhere) do these diags gom Mom or baby?
