Having a baby is an experience that transforms your life. While you may be a bit busy right now, it is important to think about your health so you can take good care of your baby. Your health now is central to the health of your baby. It is important to wait at least 18 months before having your next baby so that your body has time to rest, you have time to bond with your baby and you'll be prepared to experience the joys of motherhood all over again.
