The Lived Experience of Pregnancy and Birth for Survivors of Rape and Sexual Assault – Dr Rebecca Lissmann, Dr Michelle Lokot, Professor Cicely Marston Data suggest that a substantial number of women have survived rape or sexual assault, then sometimes years later become pregnant and give birth. Fourteen in-depth qualitative interviews were conducted with women living in the UK who self-identified as survivors of rape or sexual assault, and who had experienced pregnancy and birth after the assault. Three interconnected themes were identified from rich data: control, safety and trauma. The results are discussed with a feminist lens and contextualised within current maternity care practice in the UK. Four key implications of the research are highlighted.
