Are you thinking about having another baby?
Would you like your children to be born close together? Or would you like them to be born further apart?
Everyone has a different answer. Some parents wait. They have a second
baby after their first child is five or six.
Some parents have their children closer together. Other parents decide to
have only one or two children.
Talk to your spouse. Do you both have time and energy for another baby?
How much can you give? How will you feed him? How will you give him
clothes and medical care? What kind of house or apartment will you need?
What do you want for your children?
It makes sense to plan your family. Planning ahead lets you give the best
care to your children. Talk to your doctor, or talk to a nurse at a public
health clinic. Ask how you can space your pregnancies.
There are many safe ways to delay getting pregnant until you are ready.
Most are simple and cost little. Some work better than others. You can
choose the one that is best for you.
