Three words, Group B Strep, have you heard of them?
Until the morning of the 9th July 2004, I had never heard these words before and would little realise how they would impact my life.
After years of suffering with painful periods, I was diagnosed with PCOS and was told I would find it increasingly difficult to fall pregnant. So it came as a huge surprise to eventually see two lines appear on a pregnancy test. As I was already three months along and the pregnancy moved along swiftly. After a failed sweep when I was ten days overdue, I finally went into labour on the 8th July 2004, and gave birth at 1.31am the following morning. To this day, sixteen years later, I can close my eyes and return to the labour room and watch everything happen like a scene from a movie.
