8 weeks to go to the launch of One Step At A Time
Yasmin's situation is very common. In a caring supportive relationship a partner will look after a pregnant woman and love the growing baby. In a violent relationship a woman is at additional risk of violence during this time. Yasmin's husband is not supportive. However, it is hard for women to leave especially when they are pregnant. They are vulnerable and often feel uncertain about being alone in the world with a small child to care for. She is both physically and sexually assaulted in the last part of her pregnancy.
