Episode 6 - Group B Strep (GBS)

In this episode Mel and B lay out information about group B strep (GBS) and the GBS swab in pregnancy. We discuss why it is a bacteria found normally in 20% of the female population, the difference between colonisation and infection, the risks during, pregnancy, birth and the first week of your babies life. We talk about how it's accidentally discovered, what the usual treatment is and if this is even needed. As usual, it's information, but rebellious. We dare you to make an informed decision about what you'll do about GBS after hearing this episode.
