Strep B

Strep B

Group B strep (streptococcus), also known as “Strep B” is a type of bacterium often carried in the intestines or lower genital tract. The bacteria is normally harmless in healthy adults. In newborns, however, it can cause a serious illness known as group B strep disease. If you're pregnant, you can pay to get a group B strep screening test during your third trimester. If you have group B strep, antibiotic treatment during labour can help to protect your baby. If you’re looking for further support or information on Strep B, take a look at our list of charities and support organisations listed below.
