  1. Hi, Vanessa. I just read Zavier's birth story on Natural Family Today. :) I found it by searching "GBS + In the Caul". I am researching birth in the caul for an article I'm writing for my blog. I did not have my water broken artificially, but it broke on its own while pushing. ;)
    I was GBS + with my last two babies (born in 2003 and 2011); was given antibiotics in 2003 but was "too late" by the time I made it to hospital to have with my other son in 2011 (and therefore had to have testing done on him - NOT cool!)
    I found out, shortly after his birth, that Hibiclens is another option. Can you tell me more about how you used it, and any other info you might think is helpful? I do NOT want to have meds again if/when we have another baby.
    Btw, love the look of your blog. :) We're homeschoolers too.
