What steroids are used to enhance babies longs before preterm birth?
What steroids are used, what are their side effects, risks, benefits, ect... Is it really worth it to put these drugs into a new baby?
According to this article: http://pregnancy.about.com/cs/pretermla … rmnews.htm
Betamethasone and dexamethasone are the two most commonly used steroids
Sorry about the type, I so meant the babies "lungs" not "longs", lol

I read this was true and I just have to know if it is, please! Please provide links to prove what you say. Surely we are not going to be aborting babies ready to come into the world fully developed and healthy?
