Rachel Fleishman is a neonatologist who writes creative nonfiction. Through her writing, she hopes to highlight aspects of humanism in the care of the patients and families she serves. Her essays touch on themes such as motherhood, perinatal ethics, pregnancy, and life and death in the neonatal intensive care unit. She is also a wife and a mother of two boys and often writes about the overlap between her personal and professional lives.
