Early-Onset Group B Step Infection in Newborns: Prevention and Prophylaxis. ACNM Clinical Bulletin Number 2, April 2003 (Replaces Number 2, January 1997)


This Clinical Bulletin was developed under the direction of the Division of Standards and Practice of the American College of Nurse-Midwives (ACNM) as an educational aid to members of the ACNM. This Clinical Bulletin is not intended to dictate an exclusive course of management nor to substitute for individual professional judgment. It presents recognized methods and techniques on clinical practice which midwives may consider incorporating into their practices. The needs of an individual patient or the resources and limitations of an institution or type of practice may appropriately lead to variations in clinical care.
