Domestic violence and abuse occurs throughout society and has a devastating effect on survivors, their communities. Until the last decade, health has dealt mainly with the consequences of domestic violence with proactive identification being poor, with only meagre pro-active identification in many parts of the health sector. Women experiencing domestic abuse identify healthcare professionals as a potential source of support, yet some health care professionals including midwives are unclear about their roles and responsibilities when supporting women and children who are experiencing domestic violence and abuse. This presentation will consider the prevalence of domestic violence; examine its effect on women and pregnancy. It will also describe the role of the midwife in supporting women and provide an update of research, policy and best practice.
