Being a mom is the most beautiful gift that the nature gave to the women, and
the same time, carrying a baby for 9 months is the most challenging time that the
women may experience in her whole life.
When I became pregnant the second time, I thought I was fully prepared.
However, the world is changing rapidly, and we have to educate ourselves every second.
My goal was to have a natural delivery, as I did the first time, without any
complications; however, the world is changing rapidly, and my story took another
As we all know (I mean pregnant women), on the 35-36 weeks of pregnancy
should do a test that should show the presence of streptococcus. Why do we
do that, and is streptococcus dangerous?
Streptococcus B (Strept. Agalactiae) is a bacteria that is very often found in the vagina and/or lower intestines of women. They do not pose any danger to the NON-PREGNANT woman because these bacteria may be part of the normal flora. Even if you treat this disease, it may appear again in a few days. It's like candida, a part of our flora, but under adverse circumstances, it gets activated and brings unpleasant things like itching and discharge.
During pregnancy, streptococcus colonies may increase. About 10% of pregnant
women are thought to be carriers of Streptococcus B. The problem, as doctors
said, is that these bacteria can cause problems in newborns. If you ask the
obstetrician, they will tell you a lot of horrors, including death.
BUT IS IT SO?
Like everyone else, I did the test, showing that I have streptococcus. Wow, this is not news; everyone has it. I asked for test results to see if there were bacterial growth results. My obstetrician wasn’t happy. Pretty much any doctor on Earth is happy when you as a patient DO UNDERSTAND OR KNOW MORE THAN THEY! The test just showed that the bacteria was there. I had to explain how the test should look, but after finishing the lecture about streptococcus, I realized that it was all in vain, time wasted on the “doctor” zombied by the system. The doctor reluctantly agreed to do another test. I understood that the doctor WILL NOT ASK THE LABORATORY TO DO THE TEST, AS I EXPLAINED. So, I went to the toilet, waved my wand in the air, and put the wand in the flask. Guess what? The second test showed streptococcus positive! If your test positive, they pump you with antibiotics every 4 hours from the moment you arrive at the hospital until the baby is born. And that wasn’t my plan for my baby!
WHAT SHOULD A TEST LOOK LIKE?
There should be two tests with an interval of 3-5 days. As I wrote earlier, the number of bacteria’s growth should be indicated in the test. If the 2nd test shows a significant growth/multiplication of bacteria, then treatment with vaginal suppositories should be prescribed.
If the growth of bacteria is insignificant, then there is no threat. Doctors are afraid that if there is a small growth, then the child will pick up a bacterium passing through the birth canal, BUT if you give birth with water, then this is excluded. This is another reason why you should not allow the doctor to break the waters. The waters protect the baby from all unwanted pathogens.
When I wrote the information about the Streptococcus B (Strept. Agalactiae) 6 months ago for my blog, I found the following statistic:
Although Streptococcus B is transmitted from every second mother to a child at birth, only 1% of infected babies will develop a neonatal infection. Thus, we are talking about a banal and often occurring microbe, which, sometime after the treatment of its carrier, will return again, which makes the treatment useless and dangerous. This microbe is very often transmitted to newborns without bringing the latter any harm, not counting 1% of babies.
THE WORLD IS CHANGING RAPIDLY, AND THE SCIENCE AS WELL:
THE LANCET: 1501 episodes in 1490 patients have identified: 626 meningitis cases (in patients of all ages) and 875 sepsis cases (in patients aged 0–89 days). Mean annual group B streptococcal meningitis incidence was 1·32 per 1000 000 population.
BMJ JOURNALS: 51 of 630 206 live-born babies had died of confirmed group B streptococcal infection after becoming symptomatic within 48 hours of birth. There were a further 27 deaths from infection without a confirmed microbiological diagnosis and 17 stillbirths from confirmed group B streptococcal infection.
MEDSCAPE: The case fatality rate in the United States between 2008 and 2016 was found to be, on average, 6.5% for invasive GBS infection. I called my homeopath, and surprisingly, she had a remedy for me. Even though we did not know if I had the bacteria’s growth, the homeopath prescribed the homeopathic remedy accordingly. Homeopathy and herbs are generally much safer for a pregnant woman than essential oils. My number one recommendation will be to approach a homeopath and a herbalist first.
I also took ACIDOPHILUS CAPSULES. You may also open the capsule and sprinkle the contents directly on the vagina. You may also want to eat healthy bacteria in kefir and yogurt; however, it should be a plain one, without sugar and so-called fruits.
Increase GARLIC in your diet. Crush it into your soup, prepare roasted potato with garlic. Of course, you should consume raw garlic! It tastes delicious in your fresh salad too.
BATH with lavender essential oil. Dilute 7-10 drops of essential oil in liquid soap or 1 Tbsp of carrier oil and add it into the bath. Take a bath for 15-20 minutes.
VITAMIN C-RICH HERBS. Include nourishing herbs, such as coriander, hibiscus, and rose hips in your diet. These herbs can be taken as tea.
My baby was born with water, and of course, he didn’t pick up any harmful pathogens. I did not follow any recommendations that my obstetrician wanted. The nurse that took care of me after the birth told me that IT IS A PLEASURE FOR HER TO TAKE CARE OF THE PERSON WHO KNOWS MORE ABOUT DELIVERY THAN THE DOCTORS WHO ARE WORKING IN THE HOSPITAL FOR TWENTY YEARS.
In Aromatherapy, we usually say: “If you are in doubt, if you are not sure – DO
NOT USE IT.” When a woman is pregnant, I truly believe she has a special gift to
feel and see what other people can not feel and see. If you are not comfortable, if
you feel that some advice is not right, if you are in doubt – DO NOT FOLLOW.
Hear your inner voice and look for alternative ways. They are always there.
