No need to delay pregnancy after miscarriage

BBC Breakfast's resident GP Dr Rosemary Leonard explains new advice that women who have had a miscarriage do not need to wait before trying to get pregnant again.

A study by the University of Aberdeen of 30,000 women found that conceiving within six months offered the best chance for a healthy pregnancy.

The findings, published in the British Medical Journal, counter international guidelines that women should wait at least six months before trying again.
