GBS infection during pregency

I was discovered by my doc that I have GBS infection and he ask me to take antibiotics for 5days. the problem is this sounds like a v serious infection that will pass on to new born. may I know does anyone have it and what should I do? I heard that the infection will come back even I finish the antibiotics. I m so super worry. please share if anyone knows anything abt this. please!

This bacteria naturally lives in your intestines and vagina. Sometimes, it just overgrows, especially in pregnant women. But do not worry, the antibiotic will work. I was administered antibiotics via drip during my labour and my baby came out fine.
