A friend of my sister has had their 2 day old little girl taken to Leicester by air ambulance this morning with suspected Strep B infection. They are on their way to her now from Cornwall, they were promised an ambulance at 8am but unfortunately it didn't arrive until 2:30pm so they are having an agonising wait being away from her.
She was taken to our hospital yesterday after becoming unresponsive. They called the midwife round and when she was there baby sicked up lots of bloody mucous and had to be resuscitated
Can only imagine what they're going through and hugging Oliver extra tight right now.
** Update 27/11 **
Thank you for the vibes ladies, unfortunately I have heard this evening that the little one hasn't made it :-( her brain had been starved of oxygen and her life support machine was switched off today. She passed away in her parents arms and they have chosen to donate her heart. Just dreadful.

How frightening for everyone involved.... Sending masses of get better vibes.
Oh BE, that's awful. Really really hope she's ok - sending loads of vibes for a speedy recovery. I apparently tested positive for step b at 14 weeks but it wasn't picked up from my notes until the day after A was born. That was scary enough for me so can't image in what your friend is going through. Will be thinking of her and her little girl x

Thank you all. Little one is on life support but hasn't started responding to treatment yet. Don't think they should have been discharged from hospital in the first place.
