8th Annual Domestic Violence Conference: Lost Voices: Intimate Partner Violence: Living from Love to Fear

September 18, 2021

Maternal domestic violence abuse is often difficult to discuss during what typically is thought to be a positive and uplifting time in a woman's life. Screening this population needs to be enforced and encouraged as these victim's voices are becoming lost and not just one life is in danger but two. Understanding how the advocacy programs work alongside the court system will help with this assessment to ensure critical conversations can be had in the medical environment as well within the general public so that the safety of the mother and the infant is at the forefront.
