Korea is one of the countries where the fertility rates are very low. Non-marriage and delayed marriage result in the high risk pregnancy. The high risk pregnancy increases the birth rate of the high risk newborn, causing the recent increase in the number of preterm infants. The high risk newborn should be treated in the neonatal intensive care unit. After discharge, the specific follow- up program should be continued until 2~3 years of age. The burden of the costs of high risk newborn plays a substantial role in the low fertility rate in Korea. The government should analyse the current maternal child health service system in the country. After a critical review, more specified support should be given to the family whose high risk newborn should be cared properly.
