Many thanks to the parents and grandparents who have shared their families’ experiences on the linked pages to help prevent GBS disease in other babies. Please learn from their experiences and feel free to share your own story in one of these categories to help and inspire others:
GBS Babies – Stories of babies who have become infected by GBS before birth up to several months of age.
Subsequent Pregnancies or "Rainbow Babies" – Start of a collection of stories of pregnancies resulting in healthy siblings born after a baby with GBS disease to encourage other parents to not let GBS rob them of having more children/starting a family. Includes how the mother dealt with her anxiety and concerns. Possible GBS Infections - Start of a collection of stories of babies where the cause of infection wasn't conclusive for a variety of reasons, but was consistent with GBS infection. Parents should be sensitively encouraged to have pathology testing done to help provide closure and important information for future pregnancies.
