Trying to conceive again

It is very normal for couples to be grieving their pregnancy loss, but still desperately want to conceive again. Doctors usually want to make sure that couples have recovered both physically and emotionally from a miscarriage or stillbirth. Most experts say that women have usually recovered physically and emotionally from a miscarriage or stillbirth by 12 months.

How long to try again?

However, this does not always take that long. Some women are ready to try to get pregnant again within six months or even sooner. The whole thing just depends on every couple’s particular situation. All that being said, there is not a “set” amount of time for each woman to wait, it is just one of those things that couples need to weigh on their own.

Boost your chances

Of course, doing things like quitting smoking, eating healthy, abstaining from alcohol, getting enough exercise, reducing stress, and taking a prenatal vitamin are all things that you can do to improve your chances of having a healthy pregnancy when you do feel like you are ready to conceive again.
