  • Beta Strep is just a natural bacteria that lives in the intestine of some women. It comes out in stool and can move towards the vagina, eventually colonizing there as well. You don't catch it from anything particular thing or another. It is just there in some people, and not there in others.

  • http://children.webmd.com/tc/group-b-streptococcal-infections-in-newborns-topic-overview that will tell you a little more about it. Its very common.

  • The 2 are not related. Group B strep is very common and lives inside most people without ever causing any problems. It is just a problem if the baby gets it, but if you have it you will be given antibiotics prior to delivery.
