Abstract:
Purpose: To generate information about the impact of violence against pregnant women on the woman and the fetus. Background information: Violence against women (VAW) is a human rights issue linked to serious problems including fatal outcomes (homicide, suicide, maternal mortality, AIDS-related death) and nonfatal outcomes (physical, mental and reproductive health, chronic condition and negative health behavior). Violence against pregnant women is more serious than VAW as may affect the baby or fetus. According to JHU/CCP, violence against pregnant women is associated with a threefold increase in the incidence of low birth weight. Violence in pregnancy accounted for 16% of low birth weight. There is a greater risk of low birth weight than pre-eclampsia, bleeding, and smoking. Pregnant women who experience violence tend to delay seeking prenatal care and to gain insufficient weight. They are also more likely to have a history of STIs, unwanted or mistimed pregnancies, vaginal and cervical infections, kidney infections, and bleeding during pregnancy. Violence is linked with increased risk of miscarriages and abortions, premature labor, and fetal distress. Methods: Three interviews were conducted with women who experienced violence before and during their pregnancy. One woman had a spontaneous abortion, another had an abortion and the last gave birth to a baby with a low birth weight. Conclusion: VAW especially pregnant women impact women and their children or fetus. This requires urgent attention of all sectors including health providers, government, religious leaders, criminal justice sectors, researchers and scholars, teacher and educators, NGO's, press/mass media, society and family members to provide women survivors of violence with the support and protection they deserve, as well as prevention of future violence.
