"Understanding The Infant Microbiome & Group B Strep"

Join 5 world-leading experts to learn how

pregnancy, vaginal birth and breastfeeding

are critical for the development

of the infant microbiome.

And learn how group B Strep can be passed to

an infant during labour and vaginal birth

(if the mother is colonised with group B Strep.)

Remember, understanding group B Strep

is critically important and can save lives.

Group B Strep is the leading cause of serious

infection (meningitis & sepsis) in newborns.


This webinar will help you understand:

- The infant microbiome; what it is and why it is so critical for human health

- The microscopic processes involved during pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding

- How an infant can become colonised by Group B Strep during labour and birth

- The difference between early-onset and late-onset GBS infection
