Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

It has been established that battering during pregnancy is a frequently occurring and significantly deleterious phenomena. This article reviews the evidence regarding dynamics, prevalence, out-comes, and cultural and other influences on this issue. Although tested interventions for abuse during pregnancy are limited, there are clear indications from research with other battered women for directions to be taken.
