Hi my last baby was infected with strep b, thankfully fully recovered. I'm now on my 3rd pregnancy. 38 weeks 4 days at the moment. Private test positive for strep b in both vagina and rectum at 36 weeks. Last urine sample last week also showed strep b present... Although I was not informed of this! I have an elective section planned for 39 weeks and 2 days due to previous 3rd degree tear. Consultant said we can ignore strep b due to section but I am very concerned, I appear to be heavily colonised currently experiencing pains and inflammation of uterus. Concerned about it crossing fluid etc. What should I be asking for to protect baby? Nothing on offer at the moment, but seeing consultant tomorrow.
