It's also especially frustrating that if we didn't hear about the outbreak on the news her mum wouldn't even have mentioned it to us, putting us all at risk without having the decency to warn us
Can you yourself take the antibiotics? I have experience with WC, but don't know about medicating in pregnancy. What I do know for sure is the earlier you kill the awful little bacteria the better your chances of not seeing the illness through. Please don't stress about it tho, with proper medical attention you will be ok ☺️
Yes but with her mum not taking her to the Dr to get the swab and not quarantining her, she is spreading it to the vulnerable. Her dad may have to be the responsible parent and take her to get swabbed in his time. Its all well and good to say what the mother should be doing, but of she's not then someone has to look out for her welfare.
Ultimately, I think in an ideal world you would be able to have a calm discussion with her mother and both decide its in everyone's best interest for her to stay with mum until medical attention is sought. But if that can't happen then your dh may have to take her for the weekend and see that she is seen to by a dr.
