ABSTRACT
The author reflects on her personal experiences with pregnancy research, focusing on maternal, fetal, and neonatal issues. She believes that component outcomes are of equal importance for a composite of neonatal morbidity related with preterm birth, citing various morbidities that may have long-term implications including necrotizing enterocolitis, dysplasia, and brain injury. The author suggests the use of surrogate outcome for illness to address challenges posed by composite outcomes.
