Thank you for your query.
The treatment for GBS infection in pregnancy is to give intravenous antibiotics during labour.
So please do not worry.
As soon as you have signs of labour, or in case you experience rupture of membranes and leaking, report immediately to the ER.
Antibiotics , if started promptly, will reduce the risk of infection .
The cure is antibiotics.
Take care.
