Adverse Pregnancy Outcomes

Pregnancies occurring within short interpregnancy intervals increase the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes, such as preterm birth, and current recommendations by the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists suggest avoiding interpregnancy intervals shorter than 6 months. A study in this issue of WMJ seeks to evaluate the prevalence of adverse pregnancy outcomes among people with short interpregnancy intervals in urban Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
