Is my child suffering from meconium aspiration syndrome?
Q: My wife gave birth to a baby girl who weighed 2.75 kg. It was a normal delivery. But the baby passed stool in the womb. As far as I can understand this condition is called meconium aspiration syndrome (MAS). What problems will the baby and mother face because of MAS?
A:Only if the baby has breathing difficulty, it is called Meconium aspiration syndrome, when it may cause problems. If the baby is otherwise well, there is no problem.
