About one of every three women will be abused (American College of Nurse-Midwives, 2017). At The Birth Center: Holistic Women’s Health Care LLC, we see women from adolescence through menopause and many have experienced intimate partner abuse. We listen to clients sharing their stories, we provide resources whenever needed, and connect clients with additional support if necessary.
Intimate partner abuse can be physical, emotional, verbal, sexual, or financial (American College of Nurse-Midwives, 2017). We encourage you to read more about intimate partner abuse from Journal of Midwifery & Women’s Health’s patient information handout. See the Share with Women handout here.
April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. The Birth Center: Holistic Women’s Health Care LLC will be joining the YWCA and attending the Sexual Assault Response Center’s event on April 1, 2019. Join us to end sexual violence. Details about the event can be found below.
