My midwives are coming for a home visit tomorrow. I am 37 weeks today. They are planning on doing a gbs test. I was positive with my first homebirth and did some herbal preventative care (with a sitz bottle and essential oils diluted in water.). But my daughter was born in the caul, so it ended up being a non issue.

 

I kind of want to skip the test this time altogether, knowing I wouldn't treat except for some herbal stuff. Has anyone else skipped this test or plan to?
