Hello,
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!

Hello,
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!
