Why is detecting Group B streptococcus important?

Group B streptococcus (GBS) is a bacterial infection. If you test positive for GBS, you may not have symptoms, but could be a carrier and can pass the infection to your baby during birth. This may cause meningitis, sepsis, pneumonia, or stillbirth in extreme cases. 

Early detection of this bacteria can decrease the risk of passing the infection to your child.
