Brief description Respiratory distress syndrome is a significant problem for babies born preterm. For these babies, a significant number will require support for their breathing. These babies are also at increased risk of dying, and in survivors, there is a risk of long-term disability. It is uncertain if giving vaginal progesterone therapy during pregnancy to women who have had a previous preterm birth can reduce these risks.
