Our Cayman Islands Neonatologists

Neonatologist experience and training really matter in neonatal care. Although the majority of births are without incident, complications of pregnancy and delivery can occur at any time and if that’s in delivery, moments and good decisions really do matter. We’re proud of our experience as Cayman Islands Neonatologists.

Choosing Cayman Islands Neonatologists

We think choosing a neonatologist in the Cayman Islands is an important decision. In the UK, almost all problems associated with preterm or term complications are managed by a neonatologist – for which this is explicit accreditation. In the past, care was provided by paediatricians until neonatal medicine became a subspecialty due to the expertise required in many circumstances. In the Cayman Islands, much care is still provided by regular paediatricians attending delivery but now there are at least three accredited neonatologists, including at least two private ones. Dr Sara Watkin is one of those.
