  • Patient presenting with preterm labor < 32 weeks: (1) Betamethasone (for fetal lung development) (2) IV penicillin (if GBS positive or unknown) (3) Magnesium (neuroprotective for baby) (4) Tocolytic (to stop contractions)
  • Active labor: Contractions AND cervical changes
  • C-section would only be indicated if there were signs of intramniotic infection, fetal instability or maternal instability
  • Note: Patients should receive intravenous antibiotics rather than oral antibiotics in a patient who is GBS positive or GBS unknown
