KEY FINDINGS Data from the National Vital Statistics System •Nearly 29.0% of U.S. mothers who had a second or higher-order birth in 2014 had a short interpregnancy interval of less than 18 months. •Short intervals (i.e., less than 6 months, 6-11 months, and 12-17 months) were more common for mothers aged 35 and over (5.7%, 16.3%, and 22.1%, respectively) than mothers who were under age 20 at their previous birth (5.1%, 8.8%, and 8.4%). •Short intervals of less than 6 months and 6-11 months were…

TLDR
Rates of less than optimal IPI were high in this population already experiencing significant maternal-child health disparities, with short IPI a particular risk factor for poor outcomes for the most disadvantaged women, suggesting yet another precursor for adverse birth outcomes in those already most at risk.
Interpregnancy intervals and women’s knowledge of the ideal timing between birth and conception
TLDR
Younger age and non-use of LARC are significantly associated with IPI <12 months and a minority of women with a short IPI perceived it to be ideal, suggesting prevention of short IPIs could be achieved with improved access to postnatal contraception.

A Population-Based Matched-Sibling Analysis Estimating the Associations Between First Interpregnancy Interval and Birth Outcomes
TLDR
IPIs of <6 months were associated with increased odds of preterm birth in second-born infants, although the association is likely smaller than previously estimated by unmatched studies.
The duration of the interpregnancy interval in multiparous women and maternal weight gain between pregnancies: findings from a UK population-based cohort
TLDR
An interval of 12–23 months is associated with the lowest risk of starting the second pregnancy with a higher body weight accounting for age, and birth spacing may merit exploration as a factor impacting on perinatal morbidity in countries with high prevalence of maternal obesity.
Interventions to Increase Multivitamin Use Among Women in the Interconception Period: An IMPLICIT Network Study
TLDR
Dedicated maternal counseling during pediatric WCVs is an opportunity to influence behavioral change in women at risk of becoming pregnant as direct provision of MVIs increases the odds that women will report taking them at a higher rate than provider advice or no counseling at all.

TLDR
African-born black women have higher risk for short birth-to-pregnancy intervals compared with US-born white and black women.
Beyond birth outcomes: Interpregnancy interval and injury-related infant mortality.
TLDR
Unlike overall infant mortality, injury-related infant mortality decreased with IPI length, suggesting that the timing between births may be a marker of risk for fatal infant injuries.
