Optimum perinatal outcome is only achieved by the prevention of premature birth. When preterm delivery is unavoidable, antenatal pharmacologic therapy will result in a reduction in the leading causes of neonatal morbidity and mortality, mainly respiratory distress syndrome (RDS), BPD, intraventricular haemorrhage (IVH) and sepsis. These treatments combined with meticulous intrapartum management will result in significant improvements in the neonatal and long-term outcome in the premature baby.
