Hi i was wondering if i could have some opinions around antibiotics suring labor. I have been diagnosed with Group B strep at 39 weeks found not in urine but around vagina. There is a lot of conflicting information around having antibiotics during labor as some doctors believe it can cause more problems for the babies bacteria in their tummy and the risk of nausea and diarrhoea during labor. On the other hand though it can decreases the babies risk of contracting strep B during birth. Basically, what is the risk of the antibiotics on the babies belly? and how would they treat an infected baby anyway? I only have 6 days left if that and cannot seem to be able to make a decision HELP.
