FREE WEBINAR: Understanding The Infant Microbiome and Group B Strep (GBS)

FREE webinar featuring 3 world-leading experts on the infant microbiome and group B Strep in newborns. Approved for CE credits. Available September 2018.

"Group B strep infection is the leading cause of life-threatening infection (meningitis, sepsis) in newborn infants. A pregnant woman may unknowingly pass group B strep to her infant during labor and delivery. A newborn might appear perfectly healthy at birth, then suddenly develop fever, lethargy, and difficulty breathing. Shortly thereafter, the baby may develop meningitis, sepsis, or pneumonia and, in extreme cases, may die."

- Quote from Group B Strep in Newborns, CDC, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
