To make GBS testing standard practice in NZ

This petition had 101 supporters


This petition has been started to make GBS testing standard practice in NZ. GBS testing is only done on "high risk mothers to be" in NZ, yet many other countries do it as standard practice!!! ....so why did my 3 week old baby end up in ICU for 9 days and in a hospital for 6 weeks, why did we almost lose our little boy? Because I was a healthy pregnant European women? How is that fair!!! Why was I not told of GBS, why is it not an option to be tested for? Because of the cost?  Does the cost out weigh a babies life?  Its not good enough!  CHANGE NEEDS TO HAPPEN...let's make change happen!
