Story

My good friends lost their first child to GBS shortly after he was born after a straightforward pregnancy and relatively straightforward birth. It was a condition that neither of us had really heard much about despite being really common. His death would have been avoidable if only we’d known ❤️

I am participating in the Belfast Marathon on May 5th, 2024 to raise crucial funds for Group B Strep Support in his memory. By joining forces with fellow advocates, we aim to shine a light on this urgent cause and drive meaningful change for vulnerable newborns and their families. Your support will enable us to amplify our impact and protect more innocent lives from the devastating effects of GBS.

Join us in our mission to create a safer world for newborns. Together, we can turn the tide against GBS and give every baby the healthy start they deserve.
