To prevent MAS, traditional teaching has encouraged two methods of suctioning for neonates born through MSAF. The first is intrapartum suctioning, which entails suctioning of the neonate's nasopharynx and oropharynx after the delivery of the head but prior to the delivery of the shoulders.

In addition, newborns have an immature counter-regulatory response, which limits the use of alternate fuels, such as lactate and ketone bodies, in meeting basic metabolic requirements. Immediate consequences of hypoglycemia in the neonate include poor outcomes, worsening sepsis, and asphyxia. In the longterm, neonatal hypoglycemia may lead to impaired neurodevelopmental outcomes; some studies suggest that recurrent severe hypoglycemia may result in neuronal necrosis, contributing to impaired neurodevelopment.
