Well, like I said...I'm still learning and trying to become informed, so I don't know about a lot of stuff yet, but I just looked up stripping membranes and it said that women who are positive for GBS should not have this done, and I am. Would that be a reason for them not to break my water also, and opt for Pitocin instead?
