Stop! Silent screams

Abstract:
There is evidence to suggest that pregnancy may trigger or exacerbate domestic violence. Domestic violence is recognised to be a significant contributory factor to maternal, fetal morbidity and mortality. The midwife is ideally placed to recognise domestic abuse and offer care, support and information. This article describes and discusses the multi-complex issues surrounding domestic abuse. It highlights possible indicators, how to ask questions, the importance of documenting evidence and explores ways that midwives can be responsive to the needs of abused women and their children.
