Xiaoting, 28, wants to have two babies as soon as her parents can help with the baby. Now Dabao is just one year old, but Xiaoting has concerns again. She doesn’t know how long it will be better to have a second child after giving birth to Dabao. In fact, many mothers have the same doubts. To answer it, we have to consider many aspects.

Under normal circumstances, the time recommended by who is more than 2 years and less than 5 years

After a live birth, who (World Health Organization) recommends IPI (interval between two pregnancies) greater than 2 years and less than 5 years. This time is mainly recommended according to the literature. IPI less than 18 months will increase the risk of adverse outcomes for mothers and perinatal infants; Mothers and perinatal infants had the lowest risk between 18 and 24 months of IPI.

Who recommends two years, mainly to echo the two-year recommendation of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). For the public, 2 years is easier to remember and spread than 18 months.

In addition, mother’s age should also be taken into account. If a woman is over 35 years old, 12 months of IPI is enough, mainly considering that fertility decreases and the incidence of Infertility increases when she is over 35 years old. Old age will also lead to an increase in the incidence of pregnancy complications and birth defects.  

The time interval between two pregnancies is too short, which is bad for both mother and baby. Studies have shown that if a mother conceives a second baby within 6 months after giving birth, she may have a series of risks, such as uterine rupture, premature delivery, low birth weight infants and so on.

The mother of caesarean section is the same as the mother of natural birth. It is recommended to get pregnant about 2 years after delivery.

In addition to medical considerations, adequate time interval is also feasible in other aspects. One is that the mother’s body needs a recovery process after childbirth, which can help the mother recover and supplement the nutrition consumed during pregnancy and lactation; It also allows enough time for breastfeeding to ensure breastfeeding; In addition, there is a certain age gap between the two children, but the gap is not too large, which is also of great benefit to the common growth of the children.

After induced abortion and spontaneous abortion, how long will you get pregnant again?

Many women in this situation hope to get pregnant again early, but the risk of similar adverse outcomes is still high after spontaneous abortion and stillbirth.

No matter what form of abortion, it will cause great trauma to the uterus and must go through the recovery period. Of course, the recovery period varies from person to person, but generally speaking, a longer time is better for the recovery of all aspects of uterine function. Who recommends waiting at least 6 months for second pregnancy.

If your physical quality is poor, or you don’t know your physical recovery, you can go to the hospital for a color Doppler ultrasound examination to see if you have the physical conditions to get pregnant again.

In addition, if the previous birth was preeclampsia or premature, it is recommended to wait at least 12 months before pregnancy.

Lactation accidentally pregnant, how to do?

If the last birth was a natural birth, and you still want the child, the problem is not big. Cooperate with the doctor to do a good pregnancy examination and wait for birth at ease. The who’s IPI is only a safety suggestion, and the physical conditions of mothers are different. There are also mothers who conceive a second child within 18 months. The baby and mother are very healthy.

However, if it is cesarean section and you get pregnant soon after giving birth, you have to worry more than natural mothers. But there is no need to worry too much. Consult a doctor and explain your situation clearly. No matter what the result is, at least let yourself feel at ease.
