GBS-Related Support for Survivors and Their Families

GBStrep Mailing List
Our goal is to inform ourselves about GBS,its effects and treatment, so that we may increase awareness of it among OB/GYN's, midwives, childbirth instructors and the general community while lending a a listening ear to those who have lost babies to GBS or who have had children become sick from it. We are excited about giving each other support and helping each other educate other people so they don't have to go through what we did.
