INFORMATION FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE BACTERIAL INFECTIONS DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

What are bacterial infections?

A bacterial infection is any condition resulting from infection of a part of the body with bacterial species that are not normally present in that environment. This can mean infection of a part of the body that is normally sterile (lacking microorganisms), or that normally contains a microbiome, a community of microorganisms, most of which are bacteria. Bacterial infections that occur fairly commonly in healthy pregnant women include bacterial vaginosis (BV), urinary tract infections (UTIs), and Group B streptococcus (GBS) infection.
