  • I believe it is Cocci and it's basically bacterial staph infection. Most likely she got it in the hospital. Happens more often than you would think.. I had a friend who passed away after getting a staph infection after surgery

  • oh dear sorry to hear that. more or less from delivery they took her to intensive care because she was having problems breathing then shes had further tests and she has this infection they say its good they r treating her from birth but we are so puzzled why she got this.

  • Did your daughter/DIL have any infections when she was pregnant? It's very important to see a Dr if you get sick especially with something like strep throat or a staph infection because it can be passed to the baby. They usually test for Strep B in a pregnant woman.
