11, 12 How¬ever, Post-natal depression (PND) is diagnosed in only 50% of the women with prominent symptoms during first year after delivery. On the contrary, untreated PND can cause chronic depression and interferes in mother child bonding and even to the extent of suicide as well as infanticide in rare cases.13 However, it is important to distinguish PND from the “baby blues” that occurs be¬tween three and 10 days after giving birth; and “Post¬natal psychosis” which affects one in 500 women in the first week or so after child birth.4 The present study was conducted with an objective to assess the burden of postpartum depression in a group of Indian women attending a tertiary care teaching hospital using EPDS
She started joint pain on the right side of her knee and then the pain migrated to the left side of her body and affecting all the major joints. Her other symptom is vomiting and the mother also stated that her daughter’s body felt warm to touch. From her past medical history, we learned that this patient has had generalized hives 4-5 times per year, and the etiology has not been identified. She also had a bundle branch block 10 years ago. Her ER report
Domestic violence When we hear the word domestic violence, first thing will come up to our minds is the physical harm, as we start looking for the physical marks on the victim 's body. In a quantitative study that had been made in 10 countries in which 19% to 55% women reported that they suffered from both sexual and physical abuse by their partner 's(Ellsberg et al., 2008). The violence is not just physical, there is so many different types of violence; physical, psychological, verbal, emotional, or even economical abuse. Domestic violence as a definition is an abuse or harm within any intimated individuals, either physically, emotionally or even verbal abuse, in some cases the abuser may tend to humiliate the victim, horror, separate and
The abuser might have issues in which they take certain medications, or overdose on drugs; another might be an alcoholic. This can make a person very irrational and they can be angered easily. Because of this, they might take any bottled up anger out on their significant other, or children. “There are various possibilities for why a drink or drug habit is linked to violent behavior in relationships, but it is rarely the case that substance abuse is the only factor that precipitates violence, which is why seeking help with alcohol and drug misuse does not necessarily mark the end of domestic abuse, with many partners remaining abusive when abstinent.” (Substance
Intervention Strategy Since the very first emergency shelters for survivors of domestic and sexual violence opened in the United States in 1967, survivors have continued to have problems finding available and affordable housing options (History of the battered women 's movement, 2009). In the state of Virginia alone, 3,639 families were turned away due to full shelters in 2013 (Herring, 2014). Of the homeless population surveyed in January 2015 in the city of Richmond, Virginia, 43% reported experiencing domestic violence in the last year (Ackermann, 2015). These statistics speak to not only the prevalence of domestic violence, but also the widespread homelessness that can result when survivors cannot find safe, affordable housing. If
Glady’s Heavenfire Case Battered Woman Syndrome has provided women who have been abused at the hands of their partners recognition in the criminal justice system and is allowing women to tell their stories. Although there are controversies surrounding battered woman syndrome, it should not be viewed as an excuse for killing their partners. It is a real disorder that has affected thousands of women 's lives all over the world. Discussing the Gladys Heavenfire case will bring awareness to the life of a woman who has been abused by her partner for several years. Furthermore, it provides information on Indigenous women who are more likely to suffer abuse than white women.
The study revealed that more than 50 % of nurse participants reported the experience to be extremely or very stressful. Disaster health workers faced a particular challenges such as working in an unfamiliar environment, uncertainty about future, limited orientation, in addition to legal concerns about clinical assignments.

From a historical perspective ,the first debate took place between 1929-1932 and during the elaboration of the Codification Commission to reform the Criminal Code , which also prepared a matrimonial draft law providing for both divorce and separation. According to the Criminal Code of 1932, abortion was legal if a pregnancy resulted from a crime and where a woman’s health and life was at risk. The more liberal draft provision of abortion on socio-economic grounds failed. The law of 1932 remained in force until 1956 . Under the communist regime , in 1956 despite the protests of the Poland’s strong Catholic Church , a liberal abortion law was adopted.
Awareness and understanding can also help and support the families. An estimated 7.8 percent of American Veterans will experience PTSD at some point in their lives, with women at (10.4%) twice as likely as men (5%) to develop PTSD. About 3.6 percent of U.S. adults aged 18-54 (5.2 million people) have PTSD during the course of a year. About 30 percent of the men and women who have spent time in war zones experience PTSD. An additional 20 to 25 percent have had partial PTSD at some point in their lives.
It is a shocking fact that “nearly 20 people per minute are physically abuse they their partner in the United States” (NCADV). Thousands of people are affected by abuse but sadly not all get reported to the police. Many do not know that domestic abuse is not just child abuse or physical abuse. Domestic abuse comes in different forms that people can experience in their lives and not know they are experiencing some type of abuse. Countless innocent people are impacted by domestic violence; fortunately organizations such as White Ribbon in Australia and Women Against Abuse are attempting to make a difference to make a change.

I use the term domestic violence in this research refers to intimate partner violence.
