Violence against women is defined as any act of violence based on sex and necessarily or possibly causes physical, sexual and mental harm to women or bothers them and makes them suffer. The subject of violence against women in the pregnancy period is of special importance due to the health of child and mother; because violence brings about stress and anxiety in the pregnancy period which not only affects mother's body and spirit, but has a bad influence on the health of the fetus as well.
