My midwife just told me that I tested + for Group B Strep. I'm trying to do research on it because I really know nothing about it, I didn't have to deal with it when I was pg with DD.
I'm planning a waterbirth at a freestanding birth center and if I opt to go with IV antibiotics can I still be in the water? Also my midwife will have to get a RX from a Dr at the nearby hospital(a great place that cooperates with the birth center) for the antibiotics and then a nurse midwife will have to be present to administer them during labor. I'm upset because I didn't want to be hooked up to anything while in labor, and my insurance hasn't covered any procedures(Rhogam shot, and other stuff) I've had to do at this hospital because it's in another state. We've been paying out of pocket to have this birth at the center because it means that much to us to have it this way. But now we're faced with the costs of antibiotics, how much is that gonna be??????
