I have tested GBS+ for all three of my pregnancies. I know some women fluctuate but I seem to always be positive. My first two were hospital births so we did antibiotics. My last was at a free standing birth center so no meds of any kind. I was also at higher risk because my water always breaks first and then labor never starts. I did a lot of research and we talked about it at length with the midwife, who assured me she has been through many GBS+ births. She gave me a list of things I could do and supplements I could take during the last few weeks and after my water broke, we did a hibiclens rinse. I can't remember everything on the list (pregnancy brain...) - I know garlic was part of it.
