Planning A Pregnancy After Experiencing The Birth Of A Dead Baby?
, more or less 3 months ago I experienced stillbirth and my child is a twin. I plan to run a pregnancy program as soon as possible. How long is the safe delay for me to get pregnant again?
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Until now, there is no strong medical evidence that shows that a woman must wait for a certain period of time to get pregnant again after experiencing the birth of a dead baby (stillbirth). In general, the recommended time interval for subsequent pregnancy is around 6-12 months. This is based on the results of several studies that show that women experience lower psychological impact after 1 year post miscarriage. In addition, studies also show that the risk of both anxiety and post-traumatic disorders is higher if the next pregnancy has an estimated delivery date that is around the same date as the stillbirth event.
However, determining the time interval to get pregnant again is a personal decision and needs to be based on the readiness of you and your partner, both psychologically, emotionally, and of course physically. What is good for one partner may not be right for another. Therefore, you and you should consult directly with a specialist obstetric and gynecologist regarding the proper planning for your next pregnancy. In relation to the history of stillbirth, it is highly recommended to undergo prenatal care as early as possible in the next pregnancy, even before pregnancy. This is useful for carefully planning the next pregnancy and managing the risks that may occur.
