Steroids for Lung Development?

Anyone ever had steroids for their baby's lung development? Were they helpful? (Did it work?)

  • I was given steroids at 33 weeks when I was diagnosed with severe preeclampsia and they knew I'd be delivering very soon. My DD was born about 12 hours later, and she did not have to be intubated, just given an oxygen line for about a week.

    As far as I can tell, they worked!
