Depends...: Pregnancy and delivery by itself does not make one at risk of developing a staph infection. Staphylococcus is a very prevalent bacteria that is found on our skin, on door knobs, at the gym, and in hospitals--just to name a few! the best way to prevent a staph infection around the time of pregnancy is good hand and personal hygiene. Make sure doctors and nurses wash well before caring for you.
