Detailed Answer:
Hello sir thanks for trusting health care magic.
Betnesol is given for lung maturity of the baby and is usually given in dose of 12 mg once and then again 12 mg is repeated after 24 hours of previous injection.
It is safe and commonly given.
Just one important precaution is that her sugar levels should be normal.
All the best.
