Hello. Welcome to HCM.
Because you are planning an early delivery, it is important to ensure safety and well being of the child post birth. Steroid injections rae a common and safe method to ensure lung maturity, so that an early born baby does not have breathing troubles due to immature lungs.
So, it is best to go by your doctor's advice.
Take care..
