Group B Strep Positive? - Page 2

I may be changing to a birthing center... if I get this new job (should be hearing soon) I will have insurance that covers the center. Currently this midwife group (attached to a hospital) is the most natural-friendly place my insurance will cover. Unfortunately being single-income limits my out of pocket options.

If I switch to the birth center, I believe they don't even have the option to give antibiotics... I don't know if me testing + for gbs makes me a non candidate for there tho...

Isn't it too early to be tested? The only time I tested for it with my home births was this last birth. I was positive. Did garlic suppositories. No IVs.
