Clinical Focus

Dr. Fabiana Postolow works in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), providing day-to-day management for newborn infants from birth until discharge from the (NICU). She’s part of a multi-disciplinary team which provides care for babies who are born prematurely or those born with infections or who have a serious illness, injury, or birth defect. 

This care extends to providing informational and supportive care to the families of such patients regarding coping with uncertainties in the infant's prognosis, the appropriate course of medical care, and/or ethical dilemmas.
 
If a problem is identified before the baby is born, she provides antenatal consultation in cases that require preparation for the birth, and coordination of services. She attends high-risk deliveries, providing supportive care of infants during the transition to extrauterine life.
