Make a test for strep B compulsory in the U.K.

A lot of women find that they aren't offered a test for strep B, in most cases it is found "accidentally" due to other tests taken for thrush for example.  Strep B can be a life threatening infection for both the Mum and baby, not many people are aware of this condition and don't realise they could have this as there aren't many symptoms, in some cases none. 

Myself and other mums have never been offered and they caught infection in time before it could have caused death, I want to ensure every Mum especially first time mums who are more likely to be unaware of these infections are offered a chance to make sure they are clear from step B 

pleade sign the petition to get it made compulsory for midwifes and doctors to offer a test for every pregnacy
