Magnesium sulfate to women in preterm labor (or with a medically indicated elective preterm birth) has been shown to reduce the risk of cerebral paresis, as I understand, at least in surviving infants.

NICE in the UK writes extensively about the research and their conclusions in this guideline from 2015 (on page 276-289).
Here is the summary of recommendations .

It would be interesting to hear whether this is an established practise in your settings.

To my knowledge, Mg sulfate is not yet implemented in Swedish guidelines (but as I have heard - a national guidelines should be a work-in-progress)
