Re: Declined antibiotic for Group B & regretted it?

I know a family who had a homebirth and the mama had group strep b. I am not sure if she knew she had it prior to having the baby or not... but a few days after the baby was born she stopped breathing/almost died due to strep b infection. They were able to get the baby help in time but I am pretty sure she had to spend at least 2 weeks if not more in the hospital for treatment afterward. I'll try to find the blog post and link it.
