A novel study published recently in the British Medical Journal has claimed that women do not have to wait for another pregnancy following a miscarriage, thus countering the World Health Organization’s claim that getting pregnant within six months of miscarriage poses health risks for the newly born.
The research outlined that women who conceive within six months of a miscarriage were more likely to give birth to a healthy baby compared to those who opted for a six months or longer delay in getting pregnant again.
The study, spearheaded by Sohinee Bhattacharya from the University of Aberdeen, analyzed data from over 30,000 women. All the women involved were admitted to Scottish hospitals for maternal care between 1981 and 2000 and were having a second pregnancy following a miscarriage.
The observation conducted on the women participants, showed that those who conceived within six months of a miscarriage were rendered at a lower risk of facing another miscarriage, termination of pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy in comparison to one’s conceiving after six months.
In addition, the former group was found to be less likely to have a cesarean section, witness a premature birth or give birth to low weight babies compared to the latter group.
