I had a UTI in my middle of my second pregnancy. My urine also tested positive for GBS. I was treated w/ antibiotics. I had a planned HB, took oral antibiotics in labor, I was given several choices by my HB midwife. Anyway I have had 8 more HB's since and have chosen not to test for GBS, but presume positive and have used natural remedies. Anyway, my bit of anecdotal.
