Abstract

The incidences of maternal obesity and obesity-related maternal, fetal and neonatal complications have increased considerably. Obese people may have lower, normal or increased fat mass independent from their body mass index. We aimed to investigate the relationships between antenatal steroid therapy and maternal body fat ratio for the risk of Respiratory distress syndrome (RDS) in preterm infants.
