Abstract

The maturing foetus belongs in utero, not in the demanding environment of a specialized care unit. Infants born before term are fragile; their ability to adapt and survive in new surroundings is limited. Although current survival rates are encouraging, morbidity among preterm infants persists and may have iatrogenic underpinnings. As a result, neonatal intensive care units are under closer scrutiny than ever, especially in terms of how they may contribute to developmental disability. (Thomas, 1989:249)
