Interventions to improve preterm birth outcomes part 3

Preterm birth 1


Antenatal corticosteroid therapy:

Accurate and standardized gestational age assessment (ideally from first trimester ultrasound) is essential to ensure that all eligible mothers receive corticosteroids while avoiding unnecessary treatment  of ineligible mothers. Antenatal corticosteroid should not be routine administered in situations where the gestational  age cannot be confirmed, particularly  when gestational age is suspected to be more than 34 weeks, as the risk of harm may outweigh the benefits if mature fetuses are exposed to corticosteroid in utero.
