July Monthly Awareness Polish Box: International Group B Strep Awareness

 

***Discount Samples***

Hey y’all, welcome back! Today I have swatches from the July Monthly Awareness Polish Box. July is International Group B Strep Awareness Month and if you’re like me, you have either never heard of it or maybe you have but still really don’t know or understand what is it.  

Let’s take a deeper look into Group B Strep.

What is Group B Strep?

“Group B Streptococcus (GBS), or Streptococcus agalactiae, is a type of bacteria that is naturally found in the digestive and lower reproductive tracts of both men and women.  About 1 in 4 pregnant women “carry” or are “colonized” with GBS.”

“Carrying GBS does not mean that you are unclean.  Anyone can carry GBS. GBS is not considered to be a sexually transmitted disease or infection as it can occur on its own even in someone with no prior sexual experience. However, bacteria can be passed between sexual partners, including through oral contact.”

“Unfortunately, babies can be infected by GBS before birth and up to about 6 months of age due to their underdeveloped immune systems.”***

(For more information check out the referenced page at the end of the post.)

This month the Monthly Awareness Polish Box (M.A.P.B.) is supporting Group B Strep International by donating 10% of all sales. Preorder starts June 26th and goes thru July 9th and shipping will begin mid month. Please note, at this time international orders will not be accepted (this may change in the future).
