Maternal Health

The intersection of intimate partner violence (IPV), racism, and maternal mortality among birthing people remains one of the least explored and under-resourced topics. Yet addressing these topics is central to ensuring expectant and parenting people do not continue to die from preventable causes. According to the national partnership for women & families, each year, an estimated 324,000 pregnant people in the United States are battered by their intimate partners. IPV during pregnancy can hurt both maternal and infant health. Health Partners on IPV + Exploitation provides resources to build and strengthen connections between health centers and domestic violence programs that provide supportive services to mothers and birthing people.
