Neonatal Hypoxia is a result of inadequate oxygen during the time of a child's birth. This lack of oxygen can lead to serious health problems. A baby could suffer permanent brain damage from mere seconds without air. Damage caused by hypoxia is irreversible, so a baby who develops brain damage in this way is likely to experience lifelong effects. Potential complications include cerebral palsy, learning disabilities and mental retardation. Potential causes of Neonatal Hypoxia are: cord prolapse (when the umbilical cord leaves the uterus before the baby), cord occlusion, placental infarction (growth of extra tissue or lesions on the placenta), or a nuchal cord (when the umbilical cord wraps around the newborn's neck). It may also result from excessive maternal sedation by anesthesia, placental abruption, breech delivery (also known as breech birth - when the child comes out of the uterus foot or bottom-first, rather than head-first
