This study aimed to determine the rate of compliance on prenatal cards and the women’s knowledge and feelings regarding Group B Streptococcus (GBS) screening in a maternity ward in São Paulo City, Brazil. Structured interviews and a review of prenatal card records of 391 women were performed. The GBS screening was not recorded in more than half of prenatal cards (51.4%, n = 201); 169 women reported no knowledge or not remembering the GBS screening.
