Neonatologists and NICUs

A neonatologist is a pediatrician with extensive training in caring for babies (neonates) who are sick and require intensive care after birth. The neonatologist coordinates the care for the majority of babies in the NICU. At times, the neonatologist might consult with other specialists to help with your baby's care.

A NICU is the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit within a hospital, caring for very sick or premature babies.
