I had tested positive for Group Strep B and had my son naturally. Just make sure to get to the hospital as soon as you start going into labor, so you have enough time to get the two doses of the medication. I was induced so I soon as they started my medication for my induction they also started the medication for my Group Strep B.
Also it is very common and can go away at any time. My cousin was positive with the birth of one of her children and a year later with her next child she was negative. I hope this helps!!!! ^_^

I agree with Caty! They say it is very common. They put the meds. in the IV and you don't even have to think about it. I would tell them as soon as you get to the hospital. I would not wait for them to check your chart.

I started my delivery natural and then had an emergency C-section. I had no problems with any of it.

Good Luck!

I tested positive with Strep B...had both my kids naturally. It really isn't a big deal- they give you 2 doses (if you have time) of penicillin through IV before having the baby. As long as they get the 2 doses in, there is nothing to worry about. The worst part is that is stings when the penicillin goes in through the IV.

there is no reason you would need a section for being GBS +, none at all. many many women over colonize. i had it and had only one of the bags of penicillin and we were just fine.
