I am quite concerned and really want a birth plan in place as soon as possible. I have an appointment on Monday where they say I should be able to discuss this with the midwife.
This is my second baby. I wasn't tested first pregnancy and things went fine. This time I am worried with all I hear. I tested positive for Group B strep at 14 weeks, i hear once your positive they should treat you as positive and give you the antibiotics.
So, the obstetrician said to me that they do not routinely offer the antibiotics to GBS positive women, I really want to push for these antibiotics. The problem is that my first labour was only 4 hours so I will not have enough time for the antibiotics. I am asking to be induced at 38 plus 3 days as my daughter arrived 38 plus 6 days so when I am induced I can have the antibiotics. This is what I want to request. Is there anywhere on the guidelines which say that we should routinely be offered the antibiotics??? I need something to back me up. I had 8 early losses before this pregnancy so I want it all organized.
