What is a Neonatologist?
Neonatology is a sub-specialty of pediatrics that requires an additional three years of fellowship training in newborn intensive care. Neonatologists have the special training required to evaluate and treat medical problems in newborns and babies still in the womb; for example, a neonatologist will assist if a newborn is premature or has a serious illness, injury, or birth defect, or if a problem is identified before a baby is born.
