Makena. Hear her story.
After speaking with her doctor, Kate made a decision to start Makena® (hydroxyprogesterone caproate injection) because she was at risk for another preterm birth. Hear her story.
Kate gave birth to her son, Gabriel, 5 weeks early (35 weeks). When she became pregnant again a year later, she learned she was at risk for another preterm birth and discussed Makena with her healthcare provider.
Makena (hydroxyprogesterone caproate injection) is a progestin indicated to reduce the risk of preterm birth in women with a singleton pregnancy who have a history of singleton spontaneous preterm birth. The effectiveness of Makena is based on improvement in the proportion of women who delivered <37 weeks of gestation. There are no controlled trials demonstrating a direct clinical benefit, such as improvement in neonatal mortality and morbidity.
Limitation of use: While there are many risk factors for preterm birth, safety and efficacy of Makena has been demonstrated only in women with a prior spontaneous singleton preterm birth. It is not intended for use in women with multiple gestations or other risk factors for preterm birth.
Please see full prescribing information for Makena.
