37w4d appointment

I saw my midwife today and it went well. I'm measuring 40 weeks, but I've been measuring ahead for awhile. I'm 1cm dilated, 70% effaced and my cervix is very soft. Baby is at a -1 station, so he's pretty much in the pelvis and engaged. His position is okay, but she's worried he might turn posterior, so I'll be crawling around on my hands and knees a bit tonight. Smile Oh, and the best part, GBS-!

Great news!! I guess if you were GBS+ the midwife would just have to give you and IV or how does that work for a homebirth?

I'm delivering at a birthing center. The midwives are nurse practitioners, so they give GBS+ women IVs. I'm not sure what protocol is with a practical midwife, since I don't think their license allows them to give meds, but I'm not sure.
