Group B streptococcal (group B strep) infection is a serious bacterial infection that is a leading cause of death and disability in newborns. In the 1970s, about half of newborns with group B strep infection died. Today, due to early recognition and aggressive treatment of the infection, far fewer cases end in death.
To prevent the group B strep from spreading from parent to child, the mom is given antibiotics prior to the birth. Did you deal with this?
