  • This is one you should ask your doctor, they'll know exactly how you are doing. At one time I heard a year to let your body recover, but this may not be true for everybody.

  • Usually doctor recomend two years, because it takes two years for your body to completly recover. You can still have a healty baby if you don't wait that long but that 's just what is recomended

  • I to have heard that it takes two years for your body to fully recover from child birth. Its not just physically but hormones as well. and emotionally too! You should also take into account your family...like your new babys best interest as well before wanting another one. Theres alot of factors that go in wanting more children in a health manner. But thats my opinion.
