Group B Strep International
Promoting awareness and prevention of GBS disease in babies before birth through early infancy
​​As the proud sponsor of February as Prenatal Infection Prevention Month, our goal this month is to educate people on how to help prevent prenatal infections year-round. Many microorganisms, including group B strep, can pose a risk to an unborn baby, but there are resources and practices that can help mothers protect their babies!

The WAVES Study

We are working to identify 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!
