    Historical review on the development of neonatal intensive care and new-born nursing at the women hospital of Leipzig University from 1969 up to 1995 and the foundation of a Perinatal Center. The successes of perinatal care are demonstrated best by the decline of neonatal mortality of extremely low birth weight infants from more than 90% up to 20% in 1995. It is attributed to the progress in perinatal medicine as well as to a perfect functioning regionalization of high risk pregnancies.
