Question Prenatal Preventions of Infections

A 22-year-old G2P1 woman at 38 weeks’ gestation presents to the labor and delivery suite in labor after a pregnancy with poor prenatal care. After several hours of labor, her temperature is 39.1C (102.4F). On examination, she has significant abdominal tenderness. A complete blood cell count shows a white count of 18,400/mm3. The child is delivered with an Apgar score of 8 but is lethargic the day after delivery, with a temperature of 34.8C (94.6F), respiratory rate of 24/min, heart rate of 186/min, and mean blood pressure of 32 mm Hg. For which pathogen could good prenatal care with screening and treatment have prevented these complications?
(A) Chlamydia trachomatis
(B) Group B streptococci
(C) HIV
(D) Toxoplasmosis
(E) Treponema palladium

I think the only one from the choice that can be prevented is GBS

Yes, you are right it's answer B (GBS) but it's not because it's the only one preventable of them rather because it's the only that cause the septic scenario seen in the baby
