The neonatologist can be a valuable source of information for the pregnant woman and her partner faced with making difficult decisions. In specific clinical situations, a focused, thorough consultation by a neonatologist provides benefits for the parents, their child, the physicians, and the health care delivery system as a whole. Members of the perinatal team should act to facilitate early neonatal consultation in order to ease the transition from the obstetric to the neonatal team after delivery.
