In 2018, The Danish Society of Obstetrics & Gynecology and the Danish Paediatric Society agreed on a national consensus guideline on the treatment of imminent preterm delivery prior to 25 weeks. This review summarises the recommendations: at 22 weeks transfer to a tertiary hospital, at 23 weeks tocolysis, antenatal steroid and newborn resuscitation with parental consent, if the infant is viable, and at 24 weeks caesarean section due to foetal distress. Newborn resuscitation is standard of care, unless not indicated for other reasons at 24 weeks.
