Re: Declined antibiotic for Group B & regretted it?
I was told (by my OB in AZ) that the hospital will let you sign a consent form to decline. I don't see how any place could force you since thrre is a great chance if you could be tested before delivery it would be a different result than it was at 37 weeks. If a rapid test is offered, it is not as accurate.
Of course my OB was very serious and cautionary about what could happen if you decline. However the risk you take exposing your baby to antibiotics is equally scary to me. So I just don't know what to do.
