In June 2018, we launched a movement inspired by Molly, a GBS mom, to encourage people to #starttheGBSconversation. The goal of our #starttheGBSconversation campaign is to simply get people talking about GBS in their communities and to encourage perinatal healthcare providers to talk to their patients about GBS disease prevention. A simple conversation can have a big impact! 

Since last June, we have watched the GBS community grow and relationships with other perinatal communities form - all thanks to support from people like you. We have big things coming in July for International Group B Strep Awareness Month, so we want to encourage everyone to continue to #starttheGBSconversation and support GBS awareness in any way possible!

Learn more about how to #starttheGBSconversation
