I second the recommendation for the probiotic containing L Rhamnosus. My midwife was just telling me about this at my last appointment. She was probably talking about the same midwife as Que (we live in the same area), and if I remember correctly that midwife has not had a single case of GBS in her moms since beginning this regimen! Pretty impressive imo! I've never tested positive, but I plan to take it this pregnancy.

A gentle reminder - Even if you test positive you may have the right to refuse antibiotics, if you feel comfortable with that. It's worth talking about with your care provider. (I would still recommend the garlic, probiotic regimen).
