Group B Strep Book of Experience – Share your story

Would you like you to share your experience of group B Strep? 

Please send us your story, explaining what happened, in a maximum of 600 words. Your story will be reviewed before publication, and it usually takes 1-2 working days to appear in the Group B Strep Book of Experience. This is your story and experience, so there isn’t a right or wrong way to write it.

Some helpful pointers:

  • Write as if you’re chatting to someone about what happened
  • Start at the beginning – including how you felt, your reaction, any signs or symptoms you noticed
  • Include relevant dates and times, and try to keep your story in the order things happened
  • Describe how you felt and thought, as well as what happened, and who did what and when
  • Share what happened afterwards – both immediately afterwards and longer term
  • Describe your involvement with Group B Strep Support – how you found us (or found out about us), and what we’ve done together

We can’t include your story without an appropriate accompanying picture. If you can send a high-res image, that makes a real difference.

By submitting your story and picture, you are giving us full permission to share these online. We reserve the right to make any editorial changes.
