Could you clarify whose heartbeat (baby or mom's) and how long after childbirth?

There is a phenomenon in which before birth and for a few days after, the baby's heartbeat may have a skip in it. It is pretty common, and most doctors just "wait it out". However, if the mom increases her magnesium intake, it goes away.
