Honestly, as much as I like treating infections naturally, there are times when antibiotics are warranted.  Bacterial infections at the end of pregnancy are not to be taken lightly, and I have to advise you to follow your health care provider's advice.  While you did not specify the type of infection, I can tell you that generally bacterial infections can cause difficulty in newborns, so best to take care of it before birth.

 

There is a lot of research out there to support taking probiotics both during and after antibiotic therapy.  Saccharomyces boulardii has been shown to prevent intestinal complications from antibiotics.  Ask your provider if you can add this probiotic to your regime over the next weeks as you await your baby.  But, just to be clear, the probiotic is not a substitute, but a possible addition to the antibiotic.

 

Warmly,

Dr. Jennifer
