Meconium is feces or feces produced by the baby, when the baby is stressed, the baby can expel the feces (meconium) into the amniotic fluid, causing the amniotic fluid to turn green. Normally this meconium is passed by the baby after the baby is born.
The danger of meconium mixed with amniotic fluid is aspiration of meconium into the lungs which will affect
irritation of the pulmonary tract, causing the baby short of breath. Pneumothorax in the fetus. Pulmonary hemorrhage in fetus. Brain damage. fetal death. So that meconium that has been out in the womb and mixed with the amniotic fluid is one indication to terminate the pregnancy immediately so that the baby does not experience bad complications.
