I had never heard of strep b until my midwife phoned me up and said you have strep b like any other mum first thing you do is go on the internet to find out what it is then pops all these sad story's of people losing their babies down to a test at £11 which is not provided for us! so in this case 1 child every week isn't making it but it's getting more and more common 1 in every four women will carry it which is then passed to the child by birth you have to have an anti biotic by drip from the minute your labour kicks off but the bit that's missing is that you need it in your system 4hours before giving birth my labour was really fast so as soon as my little girl was born she had a high blood count had to get tests be on an antibiotic twice daily but it's better that than not having your child in your arms a hope with enough people petition for this every women gets the chance like me to see their kids first birthdays first Christmas please sign and share thank you
