  • Doctors recommend you give your body a year to heal. Pregnancy and labor are major experiences for our body so a year gives it time to recoup.

  • The World Health Organization recommends waiting at least 3 years before ttc. It's best for your body and best for the baby. They recently did a study reviewing other studies and actually found that longer may be better.

    Why listen to the WHO. The US ranks last or near last in the developed nations in maternal and infant mortality rates. The US ranks 41st in maternal mortality. Other developed nations have longer lifespans.

    As a nation we obviously need to look at what research is telling us and not just do whatever we feel like and hope for the best. It starts at the individual level.

  • My daughter is 9 months old & I only want my kids to be about 2 years apart. So should I have my Mirena taken out to start trying now or should I wait?
