Pregnancy after abortions
Posted on: 12/06/2007
can a female give birth to a healthy and normal child after a first or second abortion? what special steps are to be taken for it?
One or two abortions do not change a woman's ability to get pregnant or her ability to carry a child to full-term.
Anyone who is trying to get pregnant should make sure that they are eating a healthy diet, walking daily and are free of any diseases. We recommend that someone who is trying to get pregnant takes a Prenatal Vitamin every day to make sure they are getting at least 0.4 mg of Folic Acid.
We also recommend that you check to make sure you have had all your vaccinations (measles, chicken pox, tetnus and flu) before you actually get pregnant.
