I agree with BuzzBuzz, I did some of the original work with Heather Jeffreys at KGV in Sydney and the perinatal death rate from sepsis dropped dramatically after the initiation of GBS screening and treatment.So yes it is proven. No valid research has been done to clarify the weight of other factors such as number of VE's or length of ROM. Would anyone be prepared to take the chance if the risks were explained to them . Really, it's guessing at best .
