17 FETAL AND MATERNAL PHYSIOLOGY FETAL HAEMATOLOGY The fetus is hypoxic relative to the maternal oxygen state yet does not become acidotic. There are three factors accounting for this: fetal haemoglobin concentration is high, around 180 g/1, the cardiac output is greater, and finally, the oxygen affinity of fetal haemoglobin is greater. Fetal haemoglobin is comprised of two a and two y chains. The presence of y chains increases oxygen affinity beyond that of adult haemoglobin so that for a given oxygen tension in the blood a greater percentage oxygen saturation is obtained.

A modest amount is stored in the breast. h Three points may be made in relation to fat metabolism. 1. The total metabolism and demand for energy are increased in pregnancy. 2.
