Domestic violence or intimate partner violence can only be halted when the issue is brought to light, and the victims are fully supported by society. Abuse occurs to pregnant women more often than gestational diabetes and preeclampsia. This course describes the risks of intimate partner violence during pregnancy as well as screening and intervention strategies.


The goal of this continuing education module is to update the ability of healthcare providers to recognize, evaluate and intervene with women who experience abuse during pregnancy. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Recognize barriers to uncovering abuse
  • Identify warning signs and questions that can screen for abuse
  • Develop strategies for intervention with abused women
