I was GBS positive with my first baby. Does that mean I will be with my future pregnancies? Is there anything I can do to help prevent it? Thanks!
I was GSB positive with both, but my midwife says it doesn't always work that way. I did some Chinese herbs toward the end of my pregnancy and midwife said it is successful quite a bit of the time. Unfortunately, it did not work in my situation. I decided to do the hibicleans wash while in labor.

Apparently your GBS status can change in a matter of weeks, so no, you aren't necessarily going to be positive again. I have read about some methods for trying to test negative, but I can't remember what they used.
I was positive with my dd, but didn't know it until 24 hours since she was born before my 36 week visit and I hadn't been tested until I went to the hospital unexpectedly. I refused antibiotics (during labor before we knew the test results, and for dd after we had them).
I honestly can't remember with ds. Again he was born early, so I was tested at the hospital while in labor. I think it was negative.
I was negative for the first two, positive for the third, and am negative again this time, so you definitely won't automatically be + again. I was worried about it this time, but very relieved to hear I was negative this time.
