Babies do not manifest complications of organ immaturity such as hyaline membrane disease when they are born from a hormone milieu dominated by estrogen as shown by vaginal cytology. Those who are delivered from a progesterone-influenced environment are at risk for developing the problems of immaturity. A fetus probably 'ripens' in late pregnancy under the control of estrogen.
