Around 1 in 12 people are exposed to domestic violence and abuse (DVA) during pregnancy.
Health appointments during this time are a good opportunity for maternity staff and other health professionals to ask people about DVA and offer support. Maternity staff routinely screen for DVA, yet disclosure and referral rates remain low.
This course is designed for midwives and maternity staff caring for people giving birth and their families. It may also offer useful guidance for any professional providing care for pregnant people and in the postpartum period.
Participants will discover the research, guidelines and techniques for screening for DVA more effectively. They will have the opportunity to enhance their ability to support victims and contribute to creating change in DVA rates during pregnancy.
