Birth outcomes among women affected by reproductive coercion
from Journal of Midwifery & Women's Health
Reproductive coercion is a form of intimate partner violence that includes behaviors that interfere with autonomous decision‐making over reproductive outcomes. Unintended pregnancy is associated with exposure to reproductive coercion; however, little is known about the outcomes of continued pregnancies. The purpose of this study is to assess whether women who reported reproductive coercion during their last pregnancy experienced differences in birth outcomes compared with women without contemporaneous reproductive coercion.
