Question:

What is it called when an infant inhales poop in the womb?

Answer:

If a baby has a bowel movement while in the womb and inhales some of the fluid it's in, they can become sick. This is called meconium aspiration. The sickness can be treated with antibiotics. In some cases, the meconium can block their airways.
