Our genuine concern for the well-being of our community inspired us to offer dedicated services to meet the needs of pregnant survivors of domestic violence. Pregnant women who experience domestic violence are 40% more likely to have babies who are born early and require long hospital stays. Each year, we help more than 100 women and their newborns get a healthy start to family life.
Aurora Health Care’s Safe Mom Safe Baby program supports pregnant women and new moms whose lives have been affected by domestic violence. In fact, we were the first program in Milwaukee designed to meet the needs of pregnant women who are also survivors of domestic abuse.
Our program is located at the Healing Center at Aurora Sinai Medical Center. Opened in 2017, this facility offers amenities like spacious, private meeting rooms, snacks and comfortable couches. Find out more about Aurora Sinai Medical Center.
Babies born to the survivors in our program are often as healthy as any baby born at Sinai Medical Center. In 2016, 81% of women who completed the program delivered full-term babies.
Our nurse case manager provides guidance that makes a positive impact on pregnant women and their newborns. Every survivor’s healing journey is unique, which is why we consider each woman’s unique needs and circumstances. We then tailor treatments and support to help survivors and their babies achieve the best possible results.
