The objective of this systematic review was to assess the impact of increasing interpregnancy intervals (the time between the birth of a previous child and conception of the next child), defined as the time from birth to conception, on maternal and child health outcomes in any setting. The authors found too few higher-quality studies of the impact of interpregnancy intervals on maternal health to reach conclusions about maternal nutrition, morbidity, or mortality.
