Positive labour stories with group b strep


Hello ladies,
Can any of u share with me positive labour stories of your births if u have group b strep ? I found out I have this yesterday & im scared it will harm my baby girl - my biggest concern is what if the strain I have is anti biotic resistant and I'm allergic to pencillin!

Also any tips for the symptoms as I get swollen itchy vagina!

Thanks x

I had gbs in my urine with dd. I had to have her on labour ward but neither myself or my daughter had antibiotics. I just had to stay in 48hours for obs but it made no difference to my labour or babies health xx

I gave birth to my son exactly one week ago. I was step b positive and the hospital were amazing. I was placed on a drip and as I am also allergic to penicillin I was also worried, but there are a lot if other options they can give you. I was then given more antibiotics after the birth and my son was tested for any infections which came back clear. He was checked for his obs every 15 minutes for the first couple of hours. He was great.

If I test positive I plan on trying some natural methods of getting rid of it then ask to be tested again. It is something that comes and goes and it seems that a lot of women test negative the second time.

I had GBS with my first (haven't been tested yet this pregnancy). I was annoyed at the IV in my hand at first, but by the end of it all I didn't even notice it. They had to give me fluids after the birth anyway, so it was nice I already had the IV in my hand for that. And I was able to wheel the antibiotic drip along with hall as I did laps (I did A LOT of walking during early labour to help move things along faster.)

As for your fears, I'm sure the doctors have come across those situations before and would know how to handle it.

Not yet, but I'm hoping, 'cause I tested positive, too. I'm not worried, though. I was told by my nurse/midwife that they can put the antibiotics through a hep-lock just fine, so it doesn't mean being stuck to an iv pole for longer than a half-hour out of every four hours, so I guess that doesn't sound too bad.
