My midwife doesn't do the antibiotics herself. In her practice, if you test + and you choose to do IV abx (she doesn't require it, nor does she require the test), you have to hire someone to administer the IV abx (and get the rx from a doctor). My midwife is a CPM, btw.
I'm still debating whether to test or not, but I'm leaning towards not testing. If I did test +, I wouldn't do the IV abx, as I have fast labors (less than 4 hours), and I have concerns about contributing to abx-resistent GBS *and* e-coli (which is even worse). So I'd only do IV abx if I had extra risk factors (they're easy to find around here in the recent GBS threads).
