Abstract:
This paper will present findings from a study focused on violence during pregnancy. The purpose of the study is to identify the patterns of abuse during pregnancy among low-income women and to identify the impact of abuse on outcomes of the pregnancy, including complications, birth weight, and gestational age. The researchers seek to determine whether there is a difference between pregnant women who have experienced violence during the past year and those who have not. The variables being studied are complications of pregnancy, maternal 'weight gain during pregnancy, infant's birth 'weight, gestational age at time of delivery, number of prenatal visits, smoking, and use of alcohol or drugs. The data 'were collected in a nurse-managed clinic in north central Texas beginning in March, 1994, and continuing to October, 1996. The clinic population consists of women 13-I1 years of age, and is comprised of four racial groups: 60% Caucasian, 29% Hispanic, 10% Black, and 2% Asian. The majority of clients qualify for Medicaid. The clinic reports that 17% of its clients are undocumented citizens. Data analysis focuses on documented maternal and birth outcomes, looking for differences between the group of women who reported violence during the past year and the group of women who did not report occurrences of violence within the past year. Information on occurrence of violence was gathered during the admission procedure to the clinic. Outcome data 'were obtained from a database maintained by the clinic on all clients. In addition to answering these questions as data analysis progresses, the researchers will also report the birth outcomes of this study as compared to the birth outcomes of other studies reported in the literature. During 1996, this nurse-managed clinic has a reported low birth 'weight rate of 3.6%, as compared to the county reported rate of 6.1%, and the state of Texas rate of 7.1%.
