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 The Doctors Laboratory, a 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.. For your peace of mind, this is a secure website. 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.
