While we work to raise awareness of group B Strep all year round, every July we focus on raising awareness of preventing group B Strep infection in babies, as well as the work we do to support affected families.
Group B Strep Awareness Month (GBSAM) is a chance for everyone to come together, take on challenges, organise events, fundraise and raise awareness of group B Strep.

Debbie is just ONE of the many families we support every day.
Our son, Monte, was infected with Group B Strep during his birth. He was born very poorly and there were moments when we thought we wouldn’t be bringing our little boy home. Fortunately Monte was a fighter and has recovered fully. He turns 1 on the 31st July and I feel exceptionally lucky to share each day with our happy and healthy little boy.
If you or someone you love has been affected by group B Strep and want to share your story, we’d love to hear from you. Telling our stories of how group B Strep has affected us is hugely powerful and brings home the reason why awareness is so important. We will share these stories throughout the month of July on our social media platforms.
