River-Violet’s mum Melanie writes,
“I’d just like to share my story and say a huge thank you to your charity and website. I tested positive at 6 months pregnant for group B Strep on a routine swab for something else at the time. I’m from Gibraltar (an overseas British colony) and feel that there isn’t enough support or awareness where I’m from for this.
I came across your website which helped me tremendously before giving birth. I was given antibiotics during labour and gave birth to a very healthy girl called River-Violet. She is nearly 8 months old now. I’d also like to mention that I have close friends who are currently pregnant and I’ve advised them to get checked and tested to be safe.”
