Pregnancy and childbirth are important steps in any familys life. Childbirth, especially, is a complex process that requires a great deal of physical and emotional strength from both mother and baby. When the time finally comes for the baby to leave the mother's womb, many bodily functions change drastically, which can be a difficult transition for a baby's system. Premature birth, complications during delivery, and birth defects can make the transition even more challenging and require specialized care from a neonatal intensive care unit.
