What is Group B Strep (“GBS”)?


  • GBS is a common bacterium that lives in the bodies of 20 to 40% of women.
  • Like many bacteria, GBS can be passed from person to person by skin-to-skin contact.
  • Carrying GBS is not harmful to you and most women with GBS will have no symptoms, but it can affect your baby around the time of birth.
  • Occasionally, GBS can lead to serious infection in new-born babies. Very rarely, it can also cause infection during pregnancy and before labour.
