Clinical Trial Summary

Domestic violence during pregnancy can directly or indirectly cause maternal and fetal morbidity and even mortality. The investigators have modified the Abuse Assessment Screen to the Nepali context for use with a color-coded audio computer assisted self-interview method among pregnant women. This instrument will be used to identify women experiencing domestic violence during or shortly prior to their current pregnancy. In addition, an intervention video was developed to be used alongside an individual counselling session for women screening positively for domestic violence. This study aims to investigate the effect of the video and counselling session compared to standard care.


Clinical Trial Description

This randomized controlled study is a two armed study, which will take place at two locations. Eligible women will be invited to the study when attending routine antenatal care. Women agreeing to participate will be invited to first complete a questionnaire. Upon completion of this first questionnaire women are allocated to either the intervention or control arm, irrespective of their Domestic Violence (DV) Status.

All women are asked to return to the study during the last two months of their pregnancy. All women will be asked to complete the second questionnaire.
