Promoting awareness and prevention of GBS disease in babies before birth through early infancy
July is observed as International Group B Strep Awareness Month! This observance month was created to bring awareness of group B strep to the general public. Since then it has been a focal opportunity for organizations and individuals around the world to tell their stories, share information, and promote healthy outcomes for babies worldwide! Check out our toolkit and learn how you can spread GBS awareness in your community!

The WAVES Study

We want to identify the gaps in care and communication surrounding GBS disease.

To do this we need your help! We are asking both mothers who have had a baby infected with GBS and those who have not to share their experiences in this survey if they have conceived on or after January 1, 2003. Please share the link with your contacts and social media. Together we can wave goodbye to GBS disease!
