By now, you’re probably well aware of how many babies you’ll have in your lifetime.
But how do you decide when it’s safe to have another one?
The answer lies in the newborns you have, and the babies you want.
To get a clearer picture of what your future childbearing may look like, New Scientist compiled data on the babies born in the UK in 2016, including birth weight and gestational age, from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG).
We also looked at the data for babies born within a year of each other, including how many were born to the same mothers.
And we asked a bunch of questions: How much weight do you want?
How many of each baby are you going to have?
How do you plan to spend your time during your pregnancy?
And what’s the impact of having more children?
Our baby-focused infographic has answers to all these questions and more.
