Why Hire an Intimate Partner Violence Consultant for Your Practice?
Intimate Partner Violence (IPV) is a global issue that affects more than 3 million people In the United States alone. Of those 3 million, the World Health Organization estimates that 324,000 of those are birthing people.
IPV is a complex issue that has both short- and long-term health implications for the childbearing year. For many people suffering from IPV, pregnancy is the only time for healthcare provider intervention but also a greater risk for escalation of violence.
Midwives are trained to skillfully handle emergencies that may never happen in their careers and yet, often lack even a basic understanding of IPV, client implications, or screening and management strategies. Statistically, 1 in 3 clients could be victims.
Midnight Midwifery is here to offer the skillset and knowledge to keep your practice as safe as possible for victims of Intimate Partner Violence.
