Back cover copy

The birth process and the first few moments of life are fraught with danger to the baby. Thankfully most foetuses that reach term are nowadays born without significant complications, but there are still many newborns that need immediate care. And as technology increases the possibilities for extra-uterine care for premature babies, so the skills of neonatologists and neonatology nurses are increasing in breadth and depth.
