  • Mama wey old pass 35 wey go carry another belle six month after she don born get like 1.2% risk to get injury or die. De risk go reduce by 0.5% if de woman no get belle for like 18 month after she don born one.
  • As oppose to de result wey dey up, dem woman wey dey younger we go carri another belle six month after dem born before get like 8.5% risk to get injury or to die. De risk come drop down to 3.7% if dem get another belle after 18 months wen dem don born before.
