Jodiemay Martin started this petition to Health Minister and

I am petitioning for a change in the goverments and healths sector for testing expecting mothers of Group B Streptococcus (GSB) to become more regularly routinely tested. 

1 in 4 (25%) expecting mothers are carriers of the Infection being so common & leathal to newborn babies. 1 in 20 babies with or without treatment have died from this deadly infection.

If Group B Streptococcus is left untreated it can develop into much more serious and deadly infections such as Meningitis & Sepsis which i myself have faced the harsh reality of this deadly infection. 

I am asking everyone to please take 2 minutes out of your time to engage, and sign this petition to make the change & give peace to expecting & new mothers all over the UK.
