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.
