Group B Streptococcus information for women

I attended Sara Wickham's Queenstown workshops over this last week. Picked up on many things which I may blog about later. There was mention of my Group B Streptococcus pamphlet which some midwives kindly commented fabourably on.
This has stimulated me to repost this pamphlet again now. I have also loaded it to Google Docs which I hope makes it more easily accessible. It is published with a creative comments licence which means you can freely use it and adapt it to your own practice context and needs but please acknowledge that the I was the original source.
Here is the link  GBS pamphlet 2013

I love your pamphlet Carolyn. It was a great source of info as a student and now a great resource as a midwife. I have not come across an easier to use/understand resource than yours.

Carolyn said...

Thank you for this feedback Leeanne. It is good to hear from you and I appreciate you taking the time to give me this feedback. I am pleased you find this pamphlet useful for your midwifery practice.

Oh thank you so much for posting that again, Carolyn ... I just came over to look for it to share it with my online course participants, and you've made it so easy to find! :)

Glad you got this now Kate. It was nice to see you briefly at congress. I was planning to email it to you now. Good luck with your writing.

Hi Carolyn,
I am doing Sara Wickham's online GBS course and followed the link to your pamphlet.
What a fabulous pamphlet, especially describing the symptoms on an unwell baby.
I am a midwife in Australia and will be sharing it with my colleagues.
Thank you,

Recommendations have changed a little since this pamphlet was written. It is no longer recommended to use Erythromycin as an alternative to Penicillin due to increasing resistance. Also efforts to develop vaccines for GBS are ongoing. I have changed the text a little here to reflect these changes and will. Here is a link to the updated pamphlet. Thank you to everyone who has responded so positively to this pamphlet.
I hope this link works.
