Re: Group B Strep

Well I am not 100% what they would do today, but 10 years ago they did IV's. I had my daughter too fast to receive antibiotics and she caught it from me. We had to stay longer in the hospital to make sure she was not infected. Turns out she was. They put her on IV's for 3 days and she has bad eye sight in one eye from the infection. There are several other really bad side effects some of which are life threatening caused from a newborn catching group B. I personally would take the antibiotics just because it would be less going into baby than IV's and I feel guilty over my DD's eyesight even though there was nothing I could of done to prevent it from happening.
