Thanks for writing in.
Diprospan contains beclomethasone and this is the right drug for you. It will help your baby's lungs become mature faster which will reduce the rate of complications for your baby if you have a premature delivery. This steroid helps reduce the incidence of respiratory distress syndrome in children. RDS is a major problem in children.
This medication will not have significant side effects in your baby. Please get these injections to ensure that your child is healthy.
Hope this helps.
