The successful transition from fetal to neonatal life is the most complex physiological process, yet in majority (90 %) of the births, babies go through this transition without difficulty. However, certain maternal, placental, mechanical, and fetal factors can jeopardize this smooth transition and signal the need for intervention. A prompt and skilled resuscitation may prevent deaths and avert lifelong adverse sequelae in such babies that had difficulty in breathing or have a weak cry.
