In Hamilton County, nearly one in five pregnancies is spaced less than one year apart. But the amount of time between a woman’'s pregnancies has a dramatic impact on infant vitality. A pregnancy conceived less than 12 months after a previous pregnancy is nearly twice as likely to result in preterm birth. A pregnancy conceived less than six months after a previous pregnancy is nearly three times as likely to result in an infant death.
