I had it with my daughter. It's really common, you'll be giving antibiotics during labour to help prevent the baby from catching it, if the antibiotics don't have enough time to work (I'm sure it's 4 hours) then the baby would be tested for the infection after birth and treated with antibiotics until the results came back. Obviously the antibiotics during labour are optional, some people do refuse.

My personal story is I had a home birth, a very healthy baby girl 10 days overdue, I didnt have antibiotics because I didn't know I had the infection until days after her birth when the results of a sample taken a day or so before I was in labour finally made it back to my mifwide

I had it.

It was the same as Arlene really, antibiotics in labour through IV but it was a quick process. It was a pain waiting for them to circulate my system though because I was 8cm when I got to triage. So I had to limit movement under their instruction, slowing down labour essentially so itíd be effective in time. That was hell. But in the end she was fine, didnít pick up the virus but we had to stay in overnight just for monitoring and we got to go home the next day ☺️

I had group B strep with my first as well but not my 2nd and it was just like 4 hours of lots of antibiotics and that was it. Everything was fine and my daughter is 9 now. You will be okay

It's super common. I had it with 2 of my pregnancies. I haven't been tested for this one yet. You'll get antibiotics as soon as you're in labor.

I had it in my second pregnancy. I declined antibiotics due to quick labours (they have to be administered for a certain amount of time before birth) and had a home birth. I wouldn't have had them administered for long enough. I opted for a home birth and then hospital transfer for my second in case she needed antibiotics, which she didn't. I definitely would look into it first before agreeing. From an increased risk in antibiotic resistant infections to research suggesting the gut biome would be effected which is seen with increasing importance in research. With my third I tested negative and so stayed at home, and I will be tested again at 35-38 weeks as its not really accurate before then.

It really isn't super common. The bacteria lives in about 25% of healthy women in general, but GBS in pregnancy is pretty rare.

Without antibiotics your chances of passing it to baby are about 1 in 200
With antibiotics your chances are lessened to about 1 in 4000
