Prenatal Infections Can Seriously Injure or Kill

The common bacterium, Group B streptococcus (GBS), is the leading cause of life-threatening infections among newborns, including meningitis, neonatal septicemia (bacterial bloodstream infection), and pneumonia. For women, Group B strep can lead to urinary tract infections, womb infections, and stillbirth.

GBS infections can only be prevented through proper medical care including timely testing and antibiotics, even during the actual birth.

Other infections during pregnancy that require timely and proper medical care include:

  • Chicken pox
  • Fifth disease
  • German measles (rubella)
  • Hepatitis B
  • Herpes
  • Listeriosis
  • Toxoplasmosis
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Vaginal infections
