The rational presentation form of perinatal care in developed countries is evaluated within the regionalization program. Neonatal transport is the main step for the regionalization of perinatal care. It is a very important factor for reducing neonatal mortality and morbidity, especially in developing countries. Neonatal transport is a system integrity that includes more than one essential matter. Neonatal transport requires special hardware and serious organization because it can be a caused of mortality and morbidity in its own right. This guideline deals with the transport of newborn infants (definitions, personnel, technical equipment, stabilization conditions, special medical conditions, communication), and the current situation in our country and standard approaches. It should not be forgotten that changes in public space will also change the approach and that every baby should be evaluated within himself or special conditions.
