Can patients with heart murmurs take antibiotics for labor?

In brief: Can or should?

You can. Whether you should or not totally depends on the nature of the delivery and the nature of the murmur. I do not think that even mitral murmurs are treated with prophylactic antibiotics for normal labor and delivery.
Any OB docs out there?
