Hi, I am six weeks preg with my second, and all is well, however last time i had a pretty awful delivery, nothing the way i wanted because they found strep b infection in my urine during a test, so i had to have an induced labour and intro-v anti bac during labour. i am confused about whether i will automatically have to have the same things this time, HELP, i wanted as natural a labour as possible... has anyone else been told they have strep B?? (my first boy was perfect and healthy, and totally beutiful, by the way!!)

Hi, The midwifes found I had strep b during my labour with my son (now 4). I also had to have i.v antibiotics, my son also had i.v antibiotics and was in special care, he was very poorly and needed oxygen too as his heart stopped after 2.5 days of labour. I ended up having an emergency c-section. I am now 20+3 weeks pregnant and my doctor said I can have a swab taken at about 35 weeks to test for strep b. If it comes back positive then I will neeed i.v antibiotics during labour.
