, which is a corticosteroid.
It is given to a woman in 8th month of pregnancy
because Betamethasone helps in maturation of lungs in the fetus.
It is usually given in those cases where termination of pregnancy may result in a premature baby.
Studies have shown that this medication has no future side effect on the mother & child.
In fact lives of many babies have been saved by administration of this medication.
Wishing a good health.
Thanks & take care
