Yes, it's just a q-tip like swab that swipes around the vagina area, but does not go inside the vagina or the anus. Many women have the bacteria living in that area and it does not cause any problems for us. But if baby is infected during birth, it can cause serious infection. If you are positive, then antibiotics are used during labor to prevent transmission to the baby. And if you are a scheduled c-section, it is not done.

Hope that helps!
