Respiratory distress in newborns within the first hours after birth includes airway obstruction etiologies. Among them, the leading cause is meconium aspiration. However, other substances can stain amniotic fluid as well and share common pathogenic mechanisms. Maternal blood aspiration is a specific diagnostic entity and should be considered in any newborn baby with respiratory distress or apnea of unknown cause. We present a case of blood aspiration syndrome along with melena neonatorum with Apt test maternal hemoglobin confirmation.
