Group B Streptococcus – treatment

I am Group B Streptococcus-positive – what will the treatment involve?

If your screening test for GBS comes back positive, if you have had GBS found in your urine, or if you’ve had a baby previously infected with GBS, treatment with intravenous (IV) antibiotics is recommended once your labour starts or your water breaks. If you haven’t had a GBS screening test once you go into labour (for example if you are in preterm labour), it is also recommended that you be treated with IV antibiotics.
