Additional doses of steroids can help PreemiesA new research has proven that administering a second dose of steroids to babies while they are in the womb can minimize post-birth respiratory problems.

It was revealed that babies who were given a second dose of steroids require less of medical ventilation and many of them did not showed respiratory distress syndrome. The study was published in the March edition of the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology.

It was also observed in the study that there was no evidence of growth restrictions or smaller head circumferences.

Dr. Peter Bernstein, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist at Montefiore Medical Center in New York City, said that the findings of this study will be helpful in reducing the counts of premature births and neonatal mortality in the United States.
