Group B Strep: Group B Strep is an infection that can be associated with miscarraige and premature delivery. Babies born to mothers with this infection are at risk of serious infection either immediately after birth or up to three months after delivery. Antibiotics are frequently given to the mother during labor to prevent this transmission.
