GBS test in two weeks

Any suggestions for helping pass so I don't have to have antibiotics during labor?

I did not have it with my son, but I'd like to have a little extra boost to make sure I can avoid it this time as well.
Thanks!

No help with getting you to pass it but even if its positive just have them test you when your in labor since your status can change

There is a cleaner wash balled hibicleans. You can find it at most drug stores, Walmart ect..

In addition to Hibiclens (about $10 per bottle), midwife suggests Boric Acid capsuls inserted vaginally.

BTW:  I refused the GBS because I was planning a midwife birth.  Then I ended up transferring to a hospital that didn't mind that I refused the antibiotic.  Just to let you know, they CAN'T MAKE you take an IV.  :)

They won't. I even asked about retesting in two weeks if its positive, but they won't.
