The information leaflet Group B Streptococcus (GBS) in pregnancy and newborn babies has been translated from English into 14 other languages.
This information about group B Strep is aimed particularly at pregnant women and includes:
- An explanation of what group B Strep is
- What GBS could mean for a baby
- How to reduce the risk of GBS infection to a baby
- A list of the signs of GBS infection in newborn babies
Group B Strep Support wrote this leaflet in partnership with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG). The RCOG guideline on group B Strep recommends that all pregnant women should be provided with information on group B Strep, and our leaflet is an easy way to meet this recommendation.
