Anyone heard of GBS bacteria?

Has anyone heard of GBS bacteria? I have just been told I have it and need antibiotics during labor.

Please use plain text.

Re: Anyone heard of GBS bacteria?

Yep, me.  I was a carrier so I had to have antibiotics prior to my son's birth.  It can be passed on to baby when they pass through the birth canal.  I ended up with a c-section after 23 hours of labor so it didn't make a difference afterall and then my daughter was a repeat c-section.
