Early February 2020 I had the privilege to interview an old friend of mine, a wonderful mother, a great friend, a domestic abuse survivor ‘Tanya Pinnock” to help bring awareness in the pregnancy and birth community.

Domestic abuse is a very common hidden crime which takes place mostly in the abuse victims home. In the UK almost 1 in 3 women aged 16-59 will experience domestic abuse in her lifetime.

This video is a great learning tool for everyone.



Thank you for watching.

Please seek help if you think you or someone you know is a suffering from domestic abuse. Report Domestic Abuse here.

Right now as we undergo lockdown in the UK due to the coronavirus pandemic, the risk of domestic abuse is higher. Please look out for your family, friends and your neighbours.
