You can always plan when to have your next child, the choice is yours 

Many couples feel that the order and births of their children are best left to fate or to God. For some other couples, it’s the male or the male’s family that decides such questions. While these factors shouldn’t be totally dismissed, you’re better off not making them the centre of your decisions. 

So you’ll do yourself a favor by actively planning. And the key elements of planning here are – 

  1. Remember that the decision to have a child is yours and your partners! 
  2. Do not get influenced by family and society pressures 
  3. Avoiding unintended pregnancies by taking precautions for contraception, and,
  4. Consult your doctor regarding health implications and when it is a safe time to have another child.   

The ultimate responsibilities are of the couple – From giving birth to the child to their upbringing. A mother has to deal with the changes in her body and the both people involved need to make financial considerations as well. So no one else can take this decision on behalf of you and your partner. The decision is yours and your partners ONLY!

If there is one person who is almost as important as you and your partner in the decision-making process, it’s your doctor.

While a lot of information is generally available, only a doctor can give you specific advice that is personalised as per your unique requirements.
