Homicide is the leading cause of death among pregnant women. Physicians play a critical role in identifying signs of abuse, providing pregnant women with support, and increasing awareness among peers to protect pregnant women and newborns. FVPF’s OB/GYNs training program instruct on how to identify signs of abuse inflicted by partners and/or spouses. FVPF works with all the leading medical institutions to increase physician training so they can save thousands of women and newborns annually.
Your donation will help thousands of pregnant women realize safe and healthy pregnancies by training ten OB/GYNs on how to better serve patients who are pregnant and their newborns. Through the FVPF’s advanced training programs OB/GYNs are trained on how to recognize signs of abuse and how to move pregnant victims in crisis to services for help. Your contribution will allow for greater education and awareness throughout the medical field on the critical role that OB/GYNs play in protecting pregnant women via education and awareness campaigns. It will also support policies that promote funding and direct support to hospitals and health systems that sponsor such training programs, and it will enable the FVPF to continue urging medical schools to train their students on how to better serve pregnant women and their newborns. Your gift of training 10 OB/GYNs will be provided by FVPF.
