Re: Declined antibiotic for Group B & regretted it?

Do your homework, mama. There are some different options other than iv antibiotics. The risk of GBS diminishes with term babies, fewer vaginal checks, and a quick labor. Other factors to consider are water births and not washing the baby because the vernix can help protect baby from GBS. I was GBS+ with the first and had a quick labor (less than 4 hours), used Hibiclens, had a water birth at home, and did not wash baby for a few days. Things were great!
