This study analyzed 1243 pregnant women who were involved in violent incidents in the United States. Participants were predominantly poor, urban, minority group women. Results indicate that victims of violence are at greater risk of having a history of depression & attempted suicide; having more current depressive symptoms; reporting less happiness about being pregnant; & receiving less emotional support from others for the current pregnancy.
