Intimate Partner Homicide During Pregnancy in Minnesota: A 10-Year Retrospective (2012-2022)

September 29, 2023

In 2021, the Minnesota Department of Health received a Partnership Programs to Reduce Maternal Deaths Due to Violence five-year funding award from the Office on Women's Health (OWH). The award was designed to identify and reduce deaths among pregnant and postpartum individuals due to homicide and suicide, with a focus on culturally-specific prevention efforts for Black and Indigenous communities, who are most impacted by deaths during pregnancy and the postpartum period. The project partnership also involves the review of violent maternal death cases for prevention and data collection efforts.As part of the project, Violence Free Minnesota has created the following report providing a retrospective overview of intimate partner homicides during pregnancy across the past decade, using information gathered from our 2012-2022 annual Intimate Partner Homicide reports. The goal of this report is to synthesize a decade of information on intimate partner homicides during pregnancy in our state, highlight and emphasize racial disparities, memorialize and honor the victims, and recommend policy and practice changes that address the linkages between reproductive justice, racial justice, and relationship abuse in Minnesota.
