From the reviews:
"This book, authored mostly by Italian physicians and scientists, describes pain in the fetus and neonate and its consequences in later life. ... This is a good resource for neonatologists, obstetricians, pediatric surgeons, and other medical and nursing professionals in the field of perinatal care. ... This is a good book on many aspects of fetal and neonatal pain that provides a fairly extensive review of the world literature on this controversial subject." (Jay P. Goldsmith, Doody's Review Service, March, 2008)"Neonatal Pain ... presents nineteen contributions by an international group of physicians and scientists which describe and review recent medical studies indicating that fetuses and newborns do suffer pain and stress and that these stresses may have adverse effects on the children's mental, physical, and emotional development. ... provides an accessible and valuable resource for the nonscientific expert. The authors also ... highlight potential health problems in the fetus and developing child that may arise in response to pain and stress."
