There are definitely ways you can treat the gbs without antibiotics. Putting cloves of garlic "up there" in the days/weeks before delivery can kill it. And there is something called hibiclens too, thats a wash that you put up there. As for the GD, I guess it would depend on how your mw felt about it. It's not like the doctor manages your GD everyday, you do, AT HOME, so I don't see why that would be a problem imo. How big was your dd? I've read homebirth stories with GREAT outcomes of mom's with big babies (which is one of the concerns of GD right?).
