The US Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality reports "nearly 1 in 3 adult women report at least 1 physical assault by a partner, and 1 out of every 6 American women report being the victim of attempted or completed rape". The National Survey of Family Growth noted that 1 in 5 women between 18 and 44 years of age reported forced sexual intercourse by a male. A 1994 study of US women reports 1 out of 4 women presenting for gynecologic care had a history of trauma that resulted in intense emotional reaction. A 2013 online questionnaire that used DSM-5 criteria that nearly 60% of women reported physical or sexual assault.

Trauma-Informed gynecologic and obstetric care is rapidly becoming a standard of practice and training
clinicians in this framework is one recommended and evidence based way of preventing reports of patient reported obstetric violence and improving patient care and satisfaction. ACOG and WHO organizations advocate all ob-gyn clinicians are trained in the trauma-informed care framework, and advocate utilization of this framework to improve patient preventative health, satisfaction, and care experience.
