GBS bacteriuria in early pregnancy implies heavy colonization and is considered high risk for early-onset sepsis. A negative later in pregnancy is unusual because providers don't generally rescreen after a urine positive.
Strep, staph, E coli and S. pneumoniae are possible non-STI causes of opthalmia neonatorum. It's very rare in this country. There are several studies showing no difference in rates of infection with erythromycin ointment, diluted betadine and plain water.
