Group B Strep (NI)

144 Signatures Goal: 250

We, the undersigned, petition the Northern Ireland Assembly to ensure that - Every pregnant woman in Northern Ireland is fully informed about the group B Streptococcus (GBS) bacterium as a routine part of her antenatal care; - Every woman in Northern Ireland whose baby is at low risk of developing GBS infection is routinely offered a sensitive test to identify whether she is carrying group B Strep at 35-37 weeks of pregnancy on the NHS; and - Every pregnant woman in Northern Ireland found to carry GBS during her current pregnancy, plus women whose babies are also at higher risk of developing GBS infection, is offered intravenous antibiotics in labour to minimise that risk. (Please note that the information you provide will only be used for the purposes of this petition, you will not be contacted in any way, nor will your information be passed on to any other organisation. Please see http://www.ipetitions.com/privacy.html for more information)
