Summary: A comparison of the yearly statistics of National Maternity Hospital (Dublin) and University Hospital (Newark) was undertaken for the years 1983–1989. The findings appear to indicate that after the elimination of major confounding factors, the substantially higher rates of Caesarean section in Newark (17.5% versus 5.8%) did not bring about a measurable reduction in the rate of neonatal losses. The impact of paediatric care upon the respective neonatal outcomes could not be assessed on the ground of the reviewed data.
