There's a good chance that among the first specialists to care for your baby in the hospital will be a neonatologist or a neonatal nurse practitioner. This clinician potentially will see your newborn in the delivery room soon after delivery. Neonatologists are pediatric doctors who have had additional fellowship training in the care of newborns. A neonatal nurse practitioner is a nurse who has undergone advanced training and also specializes in newborn care.
One can find neonatologists and neonatal nurse practitioners caring for babies throughout their hospital stay in high-risk deliveries, in the well nursery, in the neonatal intensive care unit, or consulting with a high-risk expectant mother.
