C*Steroid Study

Can we safely reduce the risk of breathing problems for newborn babies by giving corticosteroid injections to their mothers before a planned caesarean section?

This trial is underway at Auckland Hospital and Liggins Institute, The University of Auckland. This trial may be suitable for you if you are having a planned caesarean section at 35 – 39+6 weeks of pregnancy. Find our more at the C*STEROID Trial website www.liggins.auckland.ac.nz/csteroid() or contact the team at csteroid@auckland.ac.nz

OBLIGE study

If you need to have your labour induced you may be eligible to take part in an exciting research trial called OBLIGE.
