Considering any future pregnancies can feel incredibly daunting following the loss of a baby. Your decision of whether and how to try for another child will depend on a range of considerations like your health, age, your relationship, your physical and emotional wellbeing, among other things.
If you decide to try and become pregnant again, this booklet on subsequent pregnancies prepared by SANDS, will be helpful. In it you will find information on how soon you may wish to try and become pregnant again, how you might feel being pregnant, telling other people, preparing for the arrival of another baby, labour and delivery along with how life might feel after bringing a new baby home.
As you consider subsequent pregnancies, you may also find this information, on having sex after baby loss, helpful too.
