35 weeks pregnant, recommended to take antibiotics because a family member has a staph infection, is it really necessary?

In brief: Ask your OB doc

I am not aware of any antibiotic recommendations for staph exposure in a healthy pregnant woman, but your circumstances may be high risk for reasons I am not aware of.
My suggestion is to consult with your obstetrician about the reasons why he/she thinks antibiotics are needed.
