Abstract: 

This news article reports the findings of a study of more than 430,000 pregnancies among women in 18 different countries and a second study of more than 450,000 women in 19 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. It found that the best time for couples living in the developing world to have another baby is three to five years after the last birth, and waiting a year longer than the previously recommended two years could mean better health for mother and infant.
