When to see a newborn and child specialist?

From pregnancy to delivery, becoming parents for the first time can be both hectic and rewarding, and while you’re ready to take your first step into parenthood, you might have absolutely no idea of how to take care of your newborn. Whether it’s learning proper parenting and baby care techniques or looking for more specialized care for your little one, a newborn specialist is all you need.

 

Who is a newborn specialist?

Like specialists for adults, a child specialist is a trained physician/doctor who focuses on the care of newborn infants, and their role can span from providing general paediatric care to looking over more complicated and serious issues requiring ICU hospitalization.

 

While a paediatrician can solve most health-related problems for your baby, a neonatologist provides specialized care to newborns who are born prematurely, are critically ill or require surgery. From providing care during delivery to treating infants with life-threatening illnesses, a neonatologist provides the best medical care for your new baby.

 

Where can you find a neonatologist?

If your newborn infant has some birth-related issues or your paediatrician refers you to an infant specialist for more specialized care, then you may have to get in touch with a neonatologist. The best place to look for an infant and child specialist is a regular hospital, special care nurseries or Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).
