Thanks to recent publicity on fbook I noticed the conversation about GBS and questioned my midwife about it. She agreed to test me and a week later here I am being told I've tested positive. So grateful for the awareness raised by this group. My question is about the advice leaflet I've been given. It mentions a small risk of GBS getting into the amniotic fluid and causing illness in the baby. Is there any way of knowing prior to labour whether this has happened or would the baby show any signs of being infected before birth that a healthcare professional might look out for?
