July is International Group B Strep Awareness Month
We want to encourage everyone from parents to care providers to gain and spread awareness of group B strep disease. Approximately 1 in 4 pregnant women carry GBS, which can cause miscarriage, stillbirth, premature birth, severe sickness, lifelong handicaps, or even death. However, many cases are preventable. The fact that so many parents are left unaware of the risks, implications of testing positive, or the signs of infection is not acceptable. But to make a change, we need your help. Whether it's sharing posts on social media, talking to expecting parents or care providers, or hosting a fundraiser, together we can make a world of difference.

International Conference on Group B Strep 

Join us at the International Conference on Group B Strep (ICGBS) July 23-25, 2019. It's all online, no travel necessary and registration is free. ICGBS is a virtual collaboration of health care professionals, researchers, families, and other interested individuals working towards minimizing the burden of GBS disease.

Parent Awareness & Fundraising Efforts

After losing our son Finnegan to Group B Strep, Greg and Heather Bryan, wanted to create a company that they would be able to share with their 2 children Mackayla and Cooper while giving back. As a family their belief is to support the cause in hoping no other family has to go through what they did. The sale of the Finnegan bag, which was designed by Heather, gives 20% back to GBSI.
