Many things: Mother nature can be tough. Every pregnancy poses risks to mom or baby. The goal of modern obstetrics and maternal-fetal medicine is to decrease the chances of big problems occurring. Uncomplicated pregnancies are more common than complicated ones in which mom or baby is at high risk for preterm birth, bleeding, hypertension, diabetes, multiples, birth defects or other threats to their life/health.

Is it safe to have closely spaced pregnancies?

Dr. Nicholas Fogelson
Specializes in Gynecology
Yes: Safe is a term that means different things to different people, so its hard to answer. Any pregnancy that is less than two years after the last has a somewhat higher stillbirth rate than a pregnant >=2 years after the last, but the difference is still small and the risk low. There are some individual conditions that could impact this issue as well. In general though, no.
