Why was the baby on oxygen?

As per The Sedgwick County Zoo officials quoted by US media, Chimpanzee Mahale was laboring throughout the morning when the animal care team noticed changes in her progression. They made the decision to intervene surgically, and Kucheza was born at 12:48 p.m. via C-Section. The zoo was quoted saying Mahale is recovering well behind the scenes. Due to low oxygen levels, Kucheza received treatment and bottle feedings from the animal care team before being reunited with his mom.
