Does routine testing for Group B Strep reduce early onset neonatal sepsis?

The GBS3 trial is looking at whether testing pregnant women for Group B Streptococcus reduces the risk of infection in newborn babies compared to the current strategy in place in the UK. The current strategy in the UK is to offer antibiotics during labour to women who are considered at raised risk of their baby developing a group B Strep infection.

Warrington Hospital will be offering intrapartum rapid GBS testing to women who experience labour or prelabour rupture of membranes at ≥37 weeks’ gestation.
