Hello, I went through your query, Prednisone (omnicortil) and other corticosteroids given by mouth during pregnancy slightly increase the risk of premature birth, low birth weight and pre-eclampsia, a condition that raises the mother's blood pressure and puts both child and mother at risk for severe complications. However, given the potentially dangerous effects of severe asthma on the mother and fetus, including lack of oxygen, the use of oral or inhaled corticosteroids during pregnancy should not be withheld. Please consult MD, medicine physician and your gynecologist to go for another alternative for asthma before taking prednisone.
