As advised by Babychakra expert Dr Sonali Shivlani (Prenatal) -
If the delivery is expected a little early then as a precaution this injection is given to ensure that the lungs are mature and then any does not need the NICU. You can check with the doctor if you can wait for a few days. If there is a condition which requires the baby to be delivered then it may be safer to have the baby rather than compromise the baby in the womb.
