OB's follow protocol: The frequency of invasive group b strep disease has declined since the adoption of surveillance and treatment protocols by ob's & peds. Since gbs can come & go, most moms will be screened at 35-37 wks & receive abx during labor if positive, if status unknown she will be treated & babies are monitored & tested for a specific period after delivery. Discuss your concerns with your ob.
