This presentation questions the mainstream approach to Group B Strep (GBS) in pregnancy/birth as far as research, testing, treatment. The mainstream approach is questionable in effectiveness; routine testing/treatment are not improving outcomes for babies in the developed world. In fact, the mainstream approach to GBS may be negatively effecting the health of present/future generations permanently. The holistic model is defined/explored as it relates to a whole-body view of this disease. Group B Strep (GBS) can be re-defined and re-framed as a system imbalance that indicates the need for changes in several body systems. Class covers how midwives can offer holistic view as they talk about GBS with clients, in what other ways it can be viewed, tested/treated in pregnancy. Focus is on balancing the whole person, and how important it is that we see GBS as an opportunity to focus on the motherbaby as a complex, integrated duo. Approaching GBS from the holistic perspective may give future generations a chance at improved gut health and therefore overall well-being. The holistic model of health is explored through the pregnancy, but also before conception, and then into how creating an undisturbed birth environment may affect overall gut health and influence the health of the newborn. A touch of politics and information on full informed choice rounds out this oral/visual presentation.
