In recent years, advances in perinatal care have improved the survival rate of extremely preterm newborns and newborns with severe complications. On the other hand, many health problems have been reported to emerge in childhood, school age, and even adulthood for very premature newborns. The theory of developmental origins of health and disease that suggests that a mismatch between the intrauterine and postnatal environment increases the risk of various diseases in the future is also well established. In addition, various discussions are currently underway regarding the effects of infertility treatment on newborns. Due to advances in perinatal care, the number of children in need of medical care is increasing. In this Special Issue, we welcome research in a wide range of fields related to perinatal care, such as maternal, neonatal, and childhood new health and disease concepts, pathological elucidation, diagnostic equipment, treatment, and follow-up systems. We also welcome new research to promote the health of healthy newborns and infants. Especially in this Special Issue, we invite researchers to contribute articles on clinical and animal research on new discoveries related to perinatal care.
