Pregnancy, Birth and Parenthood after Childhood Sexual Abuse

This online resource will help women who have experienced childhood sexual abuse (CSA) to prepare for pregnancy, birth and parenthood.

The effects of CSA can last a long time and having a baby can be a particularly difficult and lonely time. The resource shares real-life experiences of pregnancy, birth and parenthood and has been created through the collaboration with women who have experienced CSA, midwives and researchers.

‘What works? Patient and Stakeholder Engagement for Sexual Assault Referral Centres’

Following research undertaken into how Sexual Assault Referral Centres (SARCs) engage victims / survivors and stakeholders, NHS England has published the ‘What Works; patient and stakeholder engagement for Sexual Assault Referral Centres’ report.

It is intended to help SARCs collect and share feedback on patient involvement and identifies learning from innovative engagement work in the public, third and voluntary sectors, as well as from those working with vulnerable and excluded groups.  The report sets out a number of recommendations and identifies policies, tools and practices for service user engagement
