I was positive with my first pregnancy and got antibiotics in an iv in my hand during labor.
This time we are planning a home birth so it isn't possible to get an iv, so my midwife always has her patients take probiotic pills because these good bacteria will kill off all the strep bacteria in the intestines.
So I took my pills every day and got tested at 37 weeks and I was negative!
I'm so glad it was negative, such a relief, now I just continue to take the pills so it doesn't have any time to grow back before the birth.
I guess most every woman has it at some point in her life, it's just a question if if you have it at the end of pregnancy when it could hurt your baby.
Who has been tested?
Positive or negative?
If positive, what's your dr/midwives standerd for how to prevent your baby from catching it?
