Participants will learn about pregnancy, specific mental health disorders, & the negative health impacts that IPV can cause during those times.  The discussion will include the intersections with maternal mortality and morbidity, how to properly respond to IPV and Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders in the healthcare setting and more. We will also look at the content in relation to health disparities. It may be triggering for some. We will do our best to engage empathetically and thoughtfully with difficult content.
