Unfortunately, there's no specific treatment for IVH, except to treat any other health problems that may worsen the condition. Although care of sick and premature babies has advanced greatly, it's not possible to prevent IVH from occurring. However, giving medications (called corticosteroids) to mothers who are at risk of early delivery has been shown to lower the risk of IVH in the baby. These steroids are often given to women between 24 and 34 weeks gestation.
