My bestest friends little boy was born with group b and regretably to say he passed away with it 22 hours old, my friend had all the classic symptoms waters broke before 36 weeks with a temperature whilst in labour as she was suffering from OC of the liver she should of been given antibiotics and not only that she tested positive for it earlier on in the pregancy.
He was born and fell ill shortly after and it was actually my friend who flagged his symptoms up, and they eventually called the peditrician down..
they came down and said to my friend he had an infection but would be ok, and had she ever had strep b in her last pregancy (she hadnt had any other children, mixed up her notes).
was then told he would have to go to paddington, but then was told he was to ill to be moved, septicaemia and menigitis creeped in and unfortunate his organs started to shut down, he was kept on a life support just to keep him alive for a short while.
So at 22 hours old he was christened and his machine turnt off, my best friend sued the hospital for her own case of neglience on her care as well as for her son.
