Miracle in Progress
A Group B Strep (GBS) screening checks for the presence of a harmful bacteria that causes life-threatening infections in newborn babies.
Group B Strep is a type of bacteria that is very common and usually found in the rectum or vagina. It is normally harmless and usually doesn’t cause any serious harm during your pregnancy.
Most women who are carriers of GBS have a natural birth with no ill effect to the baby. However, it is always best to take the GBS test to make sure you are free from this bacteria, and for your peace of mind.
Once the test is carried out, our team will send you a text message with your results.

I've been to Miracle in Progress twice now, once for an early scan at 8w and one for a gender scan at 15+1 and both times i've had fantastic service with a smile.
Been here for a 6 week early pregnancy scan, a reassurance scan and today for a gender reveal! All 3 times we have been looked after and loved every minute of being here! They are lovely ladies who know what there doing! Even better to see our little baby lots of times! Will definitely be coming back for our 4d scan in few weeks!
I came here for a gender scan at 16 weeks and 4 days pregnant. The lady who scanned me was very good, she checked baby all over and was very supportive to us after only recently losing our little precious angel last year. We were very happy with the scan photos too. A* we’d highly recommend this clinic.
