This mum is looking towards the future after losing her son to Group B Strep

Healthy Mummy Crystal Afitu defines strong, positive and optimistic! She shares her story on loss and looking forward.

“I gave birth to my beautiful son Mason James on March 31st this year, he later passed away the following day 1/4/18 due to contracting GBS (Group B Strep) in utero. We both were septic, I had an immune system to fight and survive, devastatingly he didn’t,” she said.

The Healthy Mummy community has helped Crystal and her family through this hard time.
