ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
Bevin Tomlin, BS, MS
Bevin Tomlin lost her 2nd daughter, Leah, to prenatal-onset GBS in 2013. After her loss, Bevin founded Leah's Legacy to promote GBS awareness and infant loss support. She has had two more babies since.
Bevin is actively involved in promoting GBS Awareness among providers and parents as the Southeast Regional Coordinator for GBSI. She brainstormed the idea for the Alabama GBS Awareness Campaign in which she collaborated with the Perinatal Program of the Alabama Department of Public Health to have GBS awareness materials distributed throughout the state by nurse managers. She organizes GBS exhibits at perinatal health conferences as well as baby and maternity expos for parents. She is also a board member for Pregnancy After Loss Support, a worldwide support organization for moms pregnant after loss.
