    Does anyone know any information about this. My mom says she saw something on GMTV this morning in which a woman lost her baby because she carried this infection. My cousins baby almost died because of the same thing. Anyway my mom wants me to pay the £35.00 to have a test done to see if I carry it (apparently routinely done in States?) Anyone please advise.

    Hi Freya

    This website might help http://www.gbss.org.uk/
    it's got lots of information on it, I'm definately going to take the test when I get between 35 and 37wks pregnant.

    Hi Freya,

    I had a case of strep with my last child and I went into early labor they were able to stop my labor and give me a shot for it, the baby and I were fine. They say if a baby goes through the canal it could be harmful to the baby. I'm not sure if they test regularly for it though they do soooo many work ups here I never know what they are doing!!! :shock:
    Just keep telling that the baby is fine and all will be ok! :D I would suggest getting it done though you don't want to take the chance in actually having it.

    xoxo Ree
