Re: Declined antibiotic for Group B & regretted it?

Midwives do what you consent to just like OBs and mine administered the antibiotics. I don't have personal experience with this but a friend of mine declined and her daughter was infected and is now blind as a result. She regrets it sorely. But please do you own research and make an informed choice.
