Re: Declined antibiotic for Group B & regretted it?

If my math is correct.... and I am not a math gal.... you're more likely to die in an accident than to have a baby that dies from gbs.

Odds of dying in a car wreck... roughly 1.2%
40,000 deaths each yr from car accidents on average in the US.

Odds of baby dying from gbs.... ranges roughly from 0.00032 percent to 0.00096 percent.
1000-3000 deaths per yr from gbs in the US.

Odds of being struck by lightning in your lifetime... 0.0001
Just for a little more perspective.
