Thanks for posting this. The 34-37 weekers do have those higher rates of jaundice and breathing difficulties, certainly. With preeclamptics, it's just that they often can't *not* be delivered, you know?
Most of the research into theraputics is looking for something we can use to safely delay delivery by 48 hours, so we can get the steroids on board. (I am very grateful to have had *just* enough time for steroids, so that Oscar spent only a week in NICU.)
