New from Women’s Aid – a really helpful resource for domestic abuse specialists (which will be useful for social workers too) Supporting women and babies after domestic abuse – a toolkit for domestic abuse specialists to help them support pregnant women and women with babies and toddlers affected by domestic abuse. The toolkit, published by Women’s Aid and developed with the University of Stirling, provides an in-depth exploration of how mothers and babies can be affected by domestic abuse during pregnancy and when the baby is born and how they can be best supported to meet the challenges they may face. It also provides an excellent summary of key elements of good support for women and babies and how to avoid shame and blame.
