"I am delighted to support Women's Aid International 16 Days of Action Opposing Violence against Women. Violence against women is to be deplored in all its forms and any campaign which highlights the issue of violence against women should be supported. Unfortunately violence against women is something that can and does occur in pregnancy and it is up to all of us who work in the health care services to do our best to encourage women to come forward and seek help when this occurs."
