Pregnant? 3 Ways to Keep Your Baby Safe From Group B Strep!

Group B Strep (GBS) can harm your baby in the womb, but there are ways to keep him or her safe. 

  • Get tested for GBS at your prenatal visit. 
  • If you have GBS, plan ahead. If you live far from where you will deliver talk to your doctor, because it takes four hours for antibiotics to work. 
  • Let your doctor know if you are allergic to any antibiotics such as penicillin. 

It's all about having a healthy baby!
