Track: Perinatal and Neonatal Care

Perinatal and Neonatal Care


A regionalized system of perinatal care with integrated delivery of services should address the care received by women before and during pregnancy, the management of labor and delivery, postpartum care, and neonatal care. Developments in perinatal medicine have allowed the existence of premature infants. These infants arrive in life with their maternal nutrient supply abruptly disconnected and have numerous nutritional risk factors. Neonatal care evaluates and monitors the newborn system-by-system for normal versus abnormal functioning, providing maintenance of normal and potential treatment of abnormal findings. Quality, skilled care during pregnancy and childbirth is the key to the health of the baby and the mother. Several studies have also documented low birth weight as a major contributory factor in perinatal and neonatal mortality.
