Group B Strep Support provide help and support to families, especially parents, suffering from the devastating consequences of GBS infection. They also help new and expectant parents wanting more information about testing and how to reduce the risk of GBS infection for their baby.
Group B Strep Support are supported by an eminent and dedicated medical advisory panel. The charity provides free up-to-date and accurate medical information about GBS to health professionals involved in maternity care.
Before we embarked on this challenge I had no idea what Group B Strep was, or how it affected babies. It was terrifying to know that at least one baby a week dies from Group B Strep. A scary statistic in the modern world of medicine. We all know the dangers of meningitis and know how to spot the signs, but why are we all so unaware of the dangers of Group B Strep?
