According to the CDC, approximately 1 in 4 women were victims of contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner with a negative impact such as an injury, fear, concern for safety, or needing service. Intimate partner violence during pregnancy has been found to be associated with many different adverse birth outcomes. The objective of this paper is to look at the maternal, fetal, and newborn health consequences that is associated with intimate partner violence. This paper will investigate how the consequence will ultimately influence both the mother and fetus.
