Risk Of Death Increased In Children Of Mothers Subjected To Domestic Violence

A study conducted in India by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health says that domestic violence on mothers increases the possibility of early death// for their children. The risk of death was found to be doubled during perinatal and neonatal stages for children of mothers who were subjected to harassment.

The men’s survey included data related to incidents of domestic violence, whereas while the women’s survey included data on infant and child mortality. From the surveys, the researchers matched data for 5,553 married couples and then analyzed the outcomes of 2,199 pregnant women.

According to the results, nearly 18 percent of the study participants were physically abused by their husbands during their most recent pregnancy. In comparison, the prevalence of domestic violence during pregnancy in the United States has been estimated at between 4 percent and 8 percent.

After controlling for sociodemographic and maternal heath factors, the researchers found that the mortality risk during both the perinatal and neonatal periods more than doubled for offspring of mothers who experience domestic violence. However, the researchers did not find any significant associations between domestic violence and
