Eating the live culture yogurt will seed the intestines which are the source pool of GBS that gets into the vagina or bladder. You can also take lactobacillus capsules- Natures Way has an inexpensive lactobacillus supplement that has proven colonizing lactobacillus. Take care

She and the other midwives in the practice were really surprised. They said they had never had a patient's water break during a routine exam before.

I went to the store to today and found some yogurt that says "live active cultures" and some just says "active cultures." Is there a difference? I am due in 3 weeks. This is good to start now??
