Promoting awareness and prevention of GBS disease in babies
before birth through early infancy
Help prevent infection in babies!

With the current risks of group B strep and other perinatal infections and increasing concern about coronavirus (COVID-19), parents and healthcare providers need to remain vigilant to help protect babies from infection before, during, and after birth. 

Proper hygiene, such as hand washing, is at the forefront of the fight against many diseases. Avoid bodily fluids and contact with people who may be sick!
