This review gives a summary of Danish preterm care, which has been defined by national adaptation of antenatal corticosteroids in the 1970ies and continuous positive airway pressure in the 1980ies. Today, preterm survival in Denmark is high, by international standards, but lower than in the neighbouring countries Sweden and Norway. The lack of a national neonatal quality database may offer an explanation to this. Starting in 2019, the Danish Newborn Quality Database reports complete population-based measures of newborn survival and health and may help improve standards of care in the future.
