Jennifer Burkeen sat on the exam table holding her pregnant belly with a confused expression as she was told about testing positive for Group B streptococcus. "What?" she asked. It's a bacterial infection found in 25 percent of healthy women and requires antibiotic treatment at the time of delivery. Burkeen was paid about $20 an hour for that visit. In reality, she was wearing a pillow for a baby bump and holds a master's degree in biomedical science.
