This presentation will discuss the importance of midwives being an integral stakeholder in the systems-level response practices for intimate partner violence (IPV). We will identify clinical presentations of exposure to violence during childbearing, responder-inflicted harms, and barriers and facilitators to help-seeking. Next we will develop an understanding of how midwives can play a crucial role in decreasing re-victimization, morbidity, and mortality by responding with a survivor-centered approach. This presentation uses a social justice lens that addresses the complexities of IPV-related outcomes for marginalized individuals, offering actionable ways to use the midwifery model of care for individual needs by engaging a range of community-facing services.
