How Many More Babies Must Die?

Today, Shropshire Coroner John Ellery, concluded that the death of baby Pippa Griffiths at just one day old was preventable.  Baby Pippa tragically died of a Group B Strep infection and so the headline in today's Shropshire Star, "How Many More Babies Must Die?" is wholly apt.

The Coroner has decided to pass his findings to the National Screening Committee and, as campaigners, we will continue to fight for prenatal GBS information and testing to be given to all pregnant women.

As campaigners, and more importantly, as parents personally and tragically affected by this terrible and preventable infection, we know all too well the pain the Griffiths family are feeling.  Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
