It's mainly given to prevent premature Labor...and to develop the lungs in underdeveloped babies,to treat the fibroids which interfere in pregnancy,to prevent any dry skin or eczema like conditions in pregnancy

Ruchi Srivastava (shilpa)

it's used to prevent premature delivery ...no side effects of that injection..it's used for lungs mature..even my doctor also given me that injection at 30 week of pregnancy bcoz my cervix length was 3.6 cm...
it's good for you if any problems come in future
