Maybe, but why would it?  Hint - I think you are doing some homework and so am not giving a full answer.

this is not homework:) just have different opinions about the carriage of Staph aureus, and not everyone believes that this bacterium can cause further infection at birth to the child. Therefore, the question was whether to treat staph. aureus if it's just a carrier without any evidence of inflammation.

So - is the child sterile when in-utero?  Where would it get Staphs from for its initial colonization?  How would colonization with a pathological strain be detrimental?

See: http://www.ncbi.nlm....pubmed/22189535  and   http://www.ncbi.nlm.... carriage davis

 

Asymptomatic vaginal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus is common and as is colonization of newborn.
