We don’t receive any government funding, so without the support of people like you, we couldn’t continue our work to stop GBS infection in babies.
Group B Strep Support is a UK charity working to stop group B Strep infection in babies. We educate new and expectant parents, doctors, and midwives about group B Strep and provide information and support to affected families.
Every penny will help us to achieve our vision of ending preventable group B Strep infection in babies’.
We couldn’t do it without you.
The priorities for our money are:
Campaign – We campaign to improve policies and practices to prevent and treat group B Strep infection, including the introduction of effective and accurate antenatal testing.
Support – We provide support to families, especially parents suffering from the devastating consequences of GBS infection and those seeking information about group B Strep.
Awareness – We save lives through awareness and education, giving new and expectant parents and healthcare professionals free up-to-date, accurate and evidence-based information about group B Strep.
Research – We support research to find new and to enhance existing ways to prevent group B Strep infection in babies.
How your donation is helping to save babies’ lives
could help us reach expectant parents by providing 25 antenatal clinics with posters to highlight the importance of knowing about group B Strep.
could provide 4,000 families with a high-quality information booklet, giving them the vital knowledge they need to make an informed choice during pregnancy.
could pay for a seminar for MPs on national policy and research initiatives to reduce group B Strep infection and support those affected.
Allows us to responded to 55 hours of helpline enquiries from new and expectant parents and their families, providing information and support.
I recently had a baby and I had heard of group B Strep via your Facebook page, so I requested further information regarding testing for group B Strep carriage. I spoke to my midwife who advised that the NHS do not test and to do a private test if I wanted peace of mind. I decided to do the test privately and I was positive. I had antibiotics through my labour and my little boy was fine. Thank you for making information available.Lorna Conroy
