I have to have a c-sec there is no if and or buts about it. Even if I go into labor before me c-sec date. Well I am suppose to get the group strep b test tomorrow. Is it really that importan for me to get it. I mean isnt that something the baby gets when is passes through the birth canal? She wont be I dont dilate thats why i have to have the c-sec and beside this one it 12m post c-sec so they wont let me try for a vbac.

  • You don't necessarily need the test for Group B Strep bc the baby can only catch it if he/she passes through the birth canal. Strange that they are testing you... Bc if you test positive, they just make you deliver C-section or take antibiotics during labor (with vaginal delivery).
