  1. Correlates of battering during pregnancy.

    Article - En anglais

    Battering during pregnancy affects the health of both pregnant women and their unborn children.

    The purpose of this retrospective study of 488 primarily Medicaid-eligible postpartum women was to identify the constellation of factors associated with violence.

    The prevalence of battering during pregnancy was 7%, similar to that found in other studies.

    Significant correlates of battering included anxiety, depression, housing problems, inadequate prenatal care, and drug and alcohol use.

    Woman battering by a partner during pregnancy was associated with a greater severity of this constellation of patterns than those experiencing abuse before pregnancy only, or those experiencing physical attack by someone other than their partner.
