Strep B in newborns?

I have a friend who just before giving birth was diagnosed with a 
Streptococcal type b infection. She was told at the time that
this could have killed her baby if they hadn't caught it in time, and
I thought this was somewhat unusual. My question to someone is this: 
Have you heard of Streptococcal infections in newborns, and if so what
is your experience with them? What are the symptoms and pathogenesis
of this sort of infection?
