    Question

    “Thank you so much for this incredible resource! My son is now 6 months old and I am still listening to the podcast because we will be trying to conceive again soon. We always planned to have two kids that were as close in age as possible. Now that the time has come to start thinking about baby #2 I’m worried that we might be rushing into this too fast. Do you have any research on the ideal spacing between kids. I haven’t gotten my period yet and I’m not sure if my body is ready to get pregnant again. I appreciate any information you have. Thank you again for everything you do with the podcast!” – Tiffany

    Answer

    If you are planning on having more than one child there is no magic time frame that you should wait in between pregnancies and there is no right answer that fits everyone. There is research available on the risks and benefits of waiting a certain period of time in between pregnancies. Plus, organizations like the World Health Organization and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists have recommendations for minimum time frames in between a birth and getting pregnant again. This episode breaks down the evidence on spacing in between your pregnancies and some considerations for you to think about when planning.
