GBS positive

Tested GBS positive. Anyone else did natural birth while having this? Read mixed reports - antibiotic shouldn’t be taken before labour? Doc will jus put the GBS Med into IV drip? How is baby after natural delivery? Any side effect? What can I expect? Anything to note? Idk why suddenly tested positive for this, so guilty and worried for my newborn 😭😭#advicepls

me too, strep B positive, my doctor say before delivery will give me IV antibiotic to help prevent baby for infection. the iv antibiotic need to be given 4hrs before baby out. I am now 38+4, so still waiting.

no it won’t recover like that. it doesn’t affect delivery or baby, just be sure to receive the antibiotics when you are in delivery suite
