SAHM to DS Jan09, DD Mar11.
Is anyone going to do the antibiotics at the hospital? Also, someone mentioned that the risk is .5-1% for the baby if you are GBS positive. Is there anyplace to confirm that data? I haven't been able to find that info anywhere. All I see is the scary statistics that say that even WITH the antibiotics there is a risk, depending on how much GBS is in the mother.

However, if I were in a hospital, I think I'd actually want the antibiotics because they would help protect my baby from the hospital germs.
we both had horrible thrush issues for over a month after birth
