      Steen, Mary; Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (MIDIRS, 2000-09)
      It is suggested that one in four women will experience domestic violence sometime in their life and that pregnancy can be a trigger for this violence, resulting in morbidity for both mother and child. Mary Steen describes a project in Leeds set up to train midwives to be more aware of possible domestic violence in their clients and how to support those who are suffering from it.
