Group B Strep International
Promoting awareness and prevention of GBS disease in babies before birth through early infancy

We are over halfway through 2020! This year has certainly been full of changes, but we continue our dedication to promoting awareness and prevention of group B strep disease. 

We want to encourage others to keep up the great work advocating for GBS awareness. Remember to #starttheGBSconversation because even a few words can make a difference in the lives of babies worldwide.

September 2020
Signs of GBS Disease
Sepsis Awareness Month

September is Sepsis Awareness Month! GBS is a leading cause of sepsis in newborns. Sepsis is a medical emergency and its symptoms must be treated rapidly to reduce the risk of death. Take the TIME to learn the signs: Temperature, Infection, Mental decline, and Extremely ill. You could save a life. #SAM2020

Prenatal-onset GBS Disease Recognition Month

Next month is Prenatal-onset GBS Disease Recognition Month! There are three types of GBS disease, but prenatal-onset is often overlooked or not recognized, which discounts the thousands of women whose baby was miscarried or stillborn or born already sick because the baby was infected by GBS in the womb. We want to make sure that prenatal-onset is recognized and that more women and healthcare professionals become involved.
