It appears that the fetus responds in a similar fashion to intrauterine stress, particularly with regard to reduced OS formation, which leads to reductions in placental estrogen synthesis.

Subnormal levels of OS have been noted at delivery in newborns of women having complications such as pregnancyinduced hypertension (87,88), fetal growth retardation (89,90), and hypoxemia (91).
