  • I wasn't induced for being positive for strep B, I was induced due to my pre eclampsia. But I did have strep B.

  • I had strep b and they didn't induce me. They just gave me an iv with antibiotics when I was in labor.

    If they had to induce I would assume (and I could be wrong) that it is so your labor will be faster than if you weren't induced so there would be less of a chance the infection getting to your baby. I would talk to your OB and see what's up.
