Got a call from the hospital yestarday to say i had to pick up a precscription for antibiotics as they discovered i have group B Strep. The hospital midwife also said when i go into labour i will have to have IV Antibiotics. Has anyone had this in a previous pregnancy? From what i read online, it seems it is common but can be serious. Also i read that if you have it you cant get rid of it so i dont understand why i have been given antibiotics? Any info would be appreciated. I plan to ask my obstitrition about it at my next appointment but thats not until mid January.
