Neonatology is a sub-specialty under pediatrics. Neonatologists are trained healthcare professionals who specialize in the care of newborn babies. They provide comprehensive care for premature and critically ill full-term infants from birth until discharge.
No. Although neonatologists care for premature newborns and babies with underdeveloped organs, they also oversee full-term babies with injuries or congenital disabilities.
Neonatal care is a type of care given to newborn babies who are either premature or sick. They’re usually housed in a neonatal unit, part of the hospitals.
There are different reasons your baby might need neonatal care, as it is on a case-to-case basis. Frequently, they are due to the following:
- Your baby is born prematurely.
- Your baby has a low birth weight.
- Your baby has an existing medical condition that needs immediate attention and treatment.
