James A. McGregor, Marti Perhach Group B Strep International Background: Intrauterine infection is increasingly recognized as a possibly preventable cause of stillbirth (SB). The objective of this review/analysis is to justify recognition of prenatal-onset group B strep (POGBS) sepsis, distinct from early-onset (EO) and late-onset (LO) infections from group B strep (GBS) and other microorganisms. Methods: Logic model analysis: 1) Conduct an expert systematic review and analysis of group B
