They'll give you an antibiotic in your IV during labor. The risk is miniscule.

if you test positive for group b, they will just give you a shot before you give birth and that will protect the baby.

A lot of women have it. It just means you have to be on antibiotics during labor and that will protect the baby from catching it or anything like that.

no it is not dangerous at all! all they are gonna do is when you go into the hospital to deliver they will give you an IV antibiotic.
