World Prematurity Day

November 17th is World Prematurity Day, an opportunity to raise awareness about issues associated with preterm birth, like GBS, as well as spread information about how to help and support affected families.

GBS can cause preterm labor and premature rupture of membranes, causing babies to be born too early. Each year, about 15 million babies – more than 1 in 10 babies – are born prematurely from various causes worldwide. According to one study, up to 3.5 million preterm births may have been attributable to GBS in 2015 alone.
