the advice was issued a year ago, I cut and pasted and missed that. However it is still not publicised enough.

Thanks for the information. Very useful for anyone facing a preterm birth.

Women at risk of preterm birth should be given magnesium sulphate to reduce the risk of cerebral palsy in their children says a new Scientific Advisory Committee paper published today by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG). Please spread the message to anyone who may benefit.
