In brief: Depends

You didn't mention whether this was domestic violence, an accident or fall? All of this matters.
The organs most likely to be injured in the back, other than the back, itself, are the kidneys. The abdomen is protected, but a serious injury could always harm a pregnancy. If your girlfriend or wife has been harmed, be sure to seek medical attention asap.
