Current World Health Organisation guidelines recommend mothers wait at least 18 months (and ideally 24) before getting pregnant again after giving birth. But an encouraging new study suggests waiting just a year may actually be enough. According to the study of nearly 150,000 births in Canada, 12 months is enough time to wait to ensure there is no great risk of premature birth, smaller babies, or infant and mother mortality. The study confirmed, however, that becoming pregnant less than a year after giving birth would indeed put babies at risk of health problems.
