It is possible to be pregnant even after having a baby but you should follow the post pregnancy instructions that is, you should be on pelvic rest (no sex) for 6 weeks. In short, you must eat well, take proper rest and care of your body to recover quickly and overcome the stress of pregnancy, though there are a variety of things that will determine whether you can become pregnant soon after giving birth.
It is quite possible to become fertile again within a couple of weeks after delivering a child, if you are not breastfeeding. But the timing to become fertile again varies from woman to woman. It also depends on the nursing pattern of your infant. It even depends on how quickly you start ovulating after giving birth.
Getting pregnant soon after giving birth is quite risky for both ‘mother and baby’. Babies that are born too soon can have health problems. There should be a gap of at least 12 months in conceiving again as it gives your body enough time to get prepared for carrying your next child and bringing up your first child with responsibility and proper care. Birth control measures are highly recommended to avoid conceiving soon after delivery.
