  • It only becomes dangerous if it's not treated. Take your antibiotics and you should both be fine. Strep throat is usually caused by Strep A bacteria. During labor/delivery the problem for the baby is with Strep B bacteria. So, first, it's not the more dangerous (to the baby) strep and you are weeks away from delivery.
