I had my son in the UK and I was induced at 42 weeks, and was induced in a room with 3 other women, and it was overnight and my husband was not allowed to stay. They called him to come in at 8 or so in the morning, and I had my son at 1. He was allowed to stay until 8 pm, and then he had to leave and I spent that night in a ward with 3 other women and their newborns - I won't lie, it sucked. We went home the next morning.
I am surprised they offered testing for Group B strep for you, that wasn't an option for me at all and they said it is because so few women have it that it isn't worth the cost to them. They also rolled their eyes and said something about me being American when I asked about it, but that is an entirely different story :)
