Abstract

Abuse of pregnant women is a solvable health problem. The social image of pregnancy as a time of nurturing, love, and caring must be re-examined, because the evidence sadly is present that for many women abuse characterizes their pregnancies. Routine assessment of abuse with a planned intervention for all women is essential to break the cycle of violence and must be standard care for all women regardless of whether the setting is primary or tertiary care.
