To the Editor: We have a number of concerns about the Clinical Review of fetal pain by Dr Lee and colleagues.1 First and foremost, none of the authors appear to routinely provide care for premature infants, including the administration of analgesia and anesthesia. Providing clinical care to pregnant patients does not make a caregiver an expert on fetal or neonatal pain, and a clinician with expertise in this area should have been included.
