I got a Group B Strep test - have you?
Getting a Group B Strep test during pregnancy can help keep your newborn baby safe from serious health problems. Group B Strep is an infection that can easily pass from a mother to her baby when the baby is born. Protect the smallest members of your family by reminding your sisters, granddaughters, and nieces to get a Group B Strep test during every pregnancy.
