I had the GBS screen but didn’t have the results yet (later came back negative), and I asked my midwife what her recommended protocol was if it should come back positive.
She said this: “I don’t have a protocol. I will tell you what the standard of care is here in the US, and I will tell you what I think the benefits and risks are to that approach. We can talk about alternatives, and I will tell you what I think the benefits and risks are to those alternatives, and we will talk about your preferences. Then, you can think about it and let me know your decision.”
What if every OB said that for all the things they recommend, induction, sizing ultrasounds, etc. It would be amazing.
