This motivated the researcher to evaluate the implications of the domestic violence against gestational mothers to their pregnancies and their gestation lives. Thus, the purpose of the study was to investigate the influence on domestic violence on pregnancies and lives of the pregnant women. To attain this purpose, broad research was done on the peer-reviewed internet sites using the keywords. Three articles were chosen to be included as the source of the information for the research.

The research indicates that domestic violence against women is a critical issue in the care for the pregnant mother and the unborn child. The research indicated that women that lived in extended families were much more likely to be exposed to domestic violence as was compared to those living in core families. Therefore, the antenatal health care providers should consider the inhabitants of the pregnant women and administer special attention to those living in extended families. The study by Hooker and the colleagues would provide useful information about the extent of the domestic violence on the pregnant women, interventions, and the challenges facing the interventions. doi:10. jtgga.
