  • NO! There are a lot of possible complications to having any surgery. They will give you IV antibotics during labor, so don't wait until it gets really close. I had my last 2 with strep B, no problem. They just kept me on the IV during delivery.

  • With my first pregnancy, I did have group B strep, and they just had me on antibiotics through labor. It's nothing to have surgery over! It's so common that it's practically routine in half of all pregnancies. Don't fret. PS My 2nd pregnancy tested neg for it, so it's not like you have it forever...
