This chapter presents a 1988 commentary on the implications of developments in neonatal medicine on resource allocation. It claims that success, as measured by the increased survival of neonates once considered pre-viable or deformed, has come so quickly that it is easy to forget that there is no clear consensus about the allocation of available resources to modify pregnancy outcome. There is growing concern about the rapidly diminishing returns from the steady increase in manpower and material resources allocated for the acute care of neonates.
