Planning the Timing of Your Next Pregnancy


Timing of Your Next Pregnancy


It's also important to take good care of yourself between pregnancies, especially if your last baby was born early, had health problems like a low birth weight, or if your pregnancy resulted in miscarriage or infant death. Talk with your healthcare provider and make any lifestyle changes that could help, such as stopping or reducing smoking, eating well and being physically active to maintain a healthy weight. Focusing on being as healthy as possible between pregnancies will help minimize risks.
