Hey ladies, I was wondering how many of you get this on the NHS if you ask. Also do you think its worth asking? I dont know yet if I can but plan to ask at my 38 week mw appointment. From what Ive read if you have it at the time of birth it may cause some complications to your baby. This can be avoided if you know you have it and the treat you with antibiotics. They generally dont test for it routinely but are vigilent to the signs of a Strep B infection in babies. You can also have Strep B in one test that goes away in another which is also why they dont test too early. Ive found a website that send you a test kit free and then you send it away and pay £35 privately to get results. Im considering this at 39 ish weeks if I dont get it on the NHS. I feel at this point if I did test positive for it yhen Id want the mw etc to know. Any thoughts?
