In brief: Depends.
A newborn sepsis work-up is usually performed after pprom (preterm premature ru[ture of membranes) an the antibiotic coverage depends on its results, the protocol at your hospital's nursery and the type and duration of antibiotic treatment of the pregnant woman before delivery.
Penicillins and cephalosporins are commonly used.
