Pregnancies close together

Dear Dr. Amy,

I'am a young mother of four beautiful children. My oldest is 6 years old and my youngest is 5 months old. On January 3rd. I found out that once again I was expecting. I was woundering if their are any risks of complications for me and my unborn baby due to getting pregnant so close to giving birth?


Dear Michelle,

There are no significant risks to either you or the baby, except that you may become nutritionally depleted from so many pregnancies in a relatively short space of time. You can lower this risk by taking your prenatal vitamins, eating a healthy diet, drinking milk and taking additional supplements (like iron) if your doctor recommends them.
