Our hospital wants to start using a CHG prep for ALL vaginal deliveries and I would like to find out if anyone else is doing this. The plan is to prep while she is pushing or soon to deliver and allow solution to dry for 2 minutes. In addition to being a little inconvenient to do at that time I also thought that that was one of the perks of being born vaginally; you got some of mom's bacteria to help colonize the newborn gut and create a better immune system. I understand if mom is GBS+ and we don't have time to get antibiotics on board, but it seems excessive and counter intuitive in the majority of cases.
Please fill me in on any experience you have with this.......
