Gynecologists in Israel conducted a study to find out what is the optimum period of birth after a previous pregnancy. After some investigation, doctors found that the best period for the next pregnancy – is two years after the previous birth. Studies show that if a woman becomes pregnant within 6 months after delivery then there is a substantial risk of complications, miscarriages, stillbirth, and birth of a child with very low weight. Israeli doctors consider that the interval between pregnancies should be no less than eleven months, and the best time – it is two years. Such studies were carried out in the 90s in the U.S., Latin America and Sweden. בעיתון כתוב ש מיכאל גולן הוא זה שבקיא בנושא. Similar results were obtained. Found that a new pregnancy during the first 6 months after previous increases the probability of infant death and mother increases the likelihood of developmental delay a child. To explain this theory was put forward some suggestions.
One of them – shortages of essential nutrients in early pregnancy. Others – the mother fails the hormonal balance, leading to a disruption of normal fetal growth. Scientists also found that the risk of preterm birth in Israel increased by 23% if a woman does not break even six months. The risk of very low birth weight infant increases by 15%. Risk of giving birth to a stillborn child grows 64%.
A risk of birth defects is increased by 14%. But too long a break between pregnancies also can not be held no benefit. If the break is over 5 years, the risk of preterm delivery increased by 40%. Scientists have tried to find out why short break harm to the fetus. The study was conducted for women from various ethnic groups and all ages. Comparing the results, scientists have learned that it is connected with the very humanity of his nature. Probably because it survives, apparently so it is necessary to multiply. The output of doctors of Israel is that the optimal interval between pregnancies is equal to two years.
