This post offers links to all of the group B strep resources on my website, as well as to some other interesting reviews and articles that are available online. This topic is one that I have been researching for a number of years and I have written a book on this topic, Group B Strep Explained, which has been recently updated.
My articles and informational blog posts on this site (which are all freely available) include:
Some other blog posts related to this topic include:
- Incorporating bacteria into childbirth education
- Group B strep: the realm of mysteries
- What do you think about chlorhexidine?
Other freely available online resources include:
- An RCOG query bank response on GBS and water birth (which refers to the above article).
And finally, as I am so often contacted by women who wished they had had more information and/or known more about their rights when they gave birth, I recommend Birthrights’ Consenting to Treatment factsheet and urge anyone who is facing decisions in this area to get as much information as possible from as many different perspectives as possible.
