I am in late pregnancy and reading lots of baby literature. I read somewhere that all women have in vagina bacteria that can be transmitted to baby while giving birth. I was wondering if the possibility of strep B transmittion is smaller if baby is born with cesarian section.
Thanks for reply!
Chances are not smaller and cesarian section does not eliminate the risk of infection with strep B. I think you are worrying too much. Besides, group B streptococci is a bacteria that is found in the vagina or lower intestine of 10-30% of pregnant women and only 1 % of babies born to women with this bacteria develop symptoms. Do not worry that much and enjoy your pregnancy!
