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!
