I found out that I was a GBS carrier in my first pregnancy after my baby had early onset infection and had to be treated in NICU. I'm now 36 weeks with my second pregnancy & my midwife has added a GBS Alert sticker to my notes but said they won't test me on the NHS but will offer antibiotics in labour.
Should I still get tested privately or just take the antibiotics? I'm petrified that I will pass on again as my daughter was very poorly after birth, albeit she's a healthy 4 year old today.
Any advice gratefully received!
