Why is domestic abuse linked to pregnancy?

There is a very clear link between domestic abuse and pregnancy. Between 4 and 9 women in every 100 are abused during their pregnancies and/or after the birth. GEWA work very closely with NHS maternity and health visiting services to ensure expectant and new mothers are offered appropriate services for domestic abuse.
