Neonatology is a specialty achieved under Pediatrics which primarily deals with intense medical care provided to newborn infants, especially if they are ill or premature. It is usually practiced widely in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU) and hospitals. The patients of neonatologists are newborns who suffer from prematurity, low birth weight, congenital malformations, pulmonary, cardiac disorders etc.

Maternal medical care and treatment is of primary importance when it comes to conceiving and giving birth to a healthy child. As a result women looking forward to conceiving must take proper care of their own health and must visit a gynecologist from time to time. If a woman is unable to conceive within roughly 12 months then this inability is termed as infertility. There are various modern medical and technological advancements which can cure infertility and other pregnancy related issues. Similarly proper medical care and nursing of newborn infants is of utmost importance, especially at the initial stages. Newborns suffering from severe illnesses are treated at Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICU).

There are various neurological and cardiovascular diseases occurring in infants. These diseases result due to several reasons. Hydrocephalus is the condition where fluid accumulates inside the infant’s brain.

The other common neural diseases include asphyxia, seizures, hemorrhage, cerebrovascular malformations, nerve tube defects etc.

Neonatal psychology deals with infant mental health which includes the mental health of babies of ages ranging between newborn to 3 years of age. It strongly depends upon the relationship between the parent and the child. Infants usually feel more comfortable in presence of their parents rather than any strangers. They want to be close to their parents and become excited on meeting their parents if they are separated for a long time. If a baby does not feel attached to his/her parents, then it might be a serious concern and the parents need to put more efforts in showing affection towards their child.

Proper nutrition at the early stage of life is of immense importance for growth and development of the infant. The basic mode of nutrition for newborns is breast milk.
Breast feeding is the process of feeding milk to infants from a woman’s breast. It is recommended by health professionals that breast-feeding begins within the first hour of the baby’s life and may continue till the baby wants it. Breast-feeding decreases the risks of various diseases like respiratory tract infection, diarrhea, asthma, food allergies, type 1 diabetes, leukemia etc. It also helps lower chances of obesities in childhood.

Stem are considered as the building blocks of our bodies. A single stem cell is capable of developing into several specialized cells and organs like blood cells, brain etc. preservation of stem cells is of immense medical importance nowadays because with the help of stem cells several diseases can be cured such as thalassemia, leukemia, neuroblastoma etc. the dead and differentiated cells can be replaced by stem cells. Again injured cells can be repaired using stem cell transplant. Hence preservation of stem cells from the babies may prove to be beneficial in curing several ailments. The umbilical cord lining of the baby is collected, stored and preserved for such purposes.
The toxic effect of medication in children is a severe issue nowadays. Drugs having severe side effects must be monitored properly and should pass the safe pharmaceutical level. Adverse drug experiences must be routinely examined by the hospitals. ADRs over a prolonged period of time may result in making the patient disabled or can even lead to death. Hence before administering drugs to children, the drug must be monitored crucially via routine clinical trials.
