Why order a FREE Group B Strep Test Kit? Group B Strep (GBS) Bacteria kills 75 newborn British babies a year. The NHS does not routinely test for it and up to nine out of ten pregnant women have ‘never heard’ about Group B Strep bacteria which infects 700 newborn babies each year in Britain… A further 40 babies are left with serious long-term mental or physical problems, yet Group B Strep is usually preventable with antibiotic treatment for the mother during labour.
As a mum myself, I set up GroupBStrepTest.co.uk to make a FREE private Group B Streptococcus test kit available to all pregnant women. My test is a ‘Gold Standard’ ECM test processed by a fully CPA accredited laboratory- the largest independent provider of clinical laboratory diagnostic services in the UK. It is also recommended by Group B Strep Support (GBSS.org.uk). I want to give mums-to-be the opportunity to make an educated choice of whether or not to take a GBS test with NO financial obligation, unlike some sites that make you pay for the test 🙁 I’ve been offering this service since 2007 and in this time have dispatched tens of thousands of kits! Read all about me.. Kits are dispatched by First Class post, so you can be sure of a quick service.
I also aim to raise awareness of GBS infection in babies and support the charity Group B Strep Support in the amazing work that they do.
