    Maternal Health, Neonatology and Perinatology welcomes Research and Review articles related to the health and diseases of mothers of reproductive age groups, and those related to neonatal and perinatal topics.

    The journal is also interested in articles on the health and illnesses affecting the foetus and newborn infant. Some examples of these are: infectious diseases, medical and surgical conditions of major organ systems, routine and intensive care of newborn infants, neonatal resuscitation, breastfeeding, human milk feeding and nutrition, and the follow-up and outcomes of high and normal-risk newborn infants. In general, these topics should be related to maternal health, neonatology and perinatology, and be relevant globally or to a specific region or country.
