[en] Updated information on the most common infectious diseases that the mother may transmit to her infant during pregnancy, at birth or by breast feeding the infant. Most of the emphasis is directed to preventive measures, screening when interventions are available, and the detailed analysis of interventions during the preconceptional period, antenatal care, perinatal care and maternal and neonatal care after birth. The strategic approach for prevention is illustrated with the group B streptococci story. This information emphasizes the basic knowledge of the pathogen, the disease, the burden of problems caused by the disease in the mother and her offspring, epidemiological aspects, and how to manage the disease. Most of the emphasis is directed to screening-based preventive measures and new approaches to improve the accuracy and predictive values of screening are discussed. An update of the developments of a group B streptococcal vaccine is briefly presented.
