can you get pregnant with a newborn

Most women ovulate 6-8 weeks after their baby is born so keep in mind you could get pregnant again even if you haven’t started your menstrual cycle. It may be a good idea to discuss family planning options at your six week check-up if you do not wish to have another pregnancy right away.
