Healthy happy baby!

Just wanted to write a post to reassure ladies who may have received a positive test for GBS. I tested positive and of course was really worried about it in the run up to my due date. Thankfully, the hospital gave me the IV antibiotics and my baby boy George was born healthy and well. We were both monitored for 24hrs after the birth as well to make sure nothing developed. Looking back I'm so glad I found out about GBS so the appropriate steps could be taken to keep my baby safe.
