"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
