Sydney mother, Eliza Curby, can absolutely debunk the idea that you can’t get pregnant if you are breastfeeding.
The 27-year-old has opened up about the horrifying moment she found out she was pregnant with twin boys just six weeks after having her first child in January, 2016.
Eliza admitted she hadn’t even thought about contraception after giving birth. She told Daily Mail Australia, “my doctor actually uses me as an example for couples when they say they don’t have any contraception plans after the birth of their child.
“I knew I was pregnant straight away because when I woke up I felt like I had been hit in the head with a baseball bat. I took four pregnancy tests before one came back positive.”
But when Eliza found out she was not just pregnant, but pregnant with twins, she couldn’t believe it. The young mum said she was in denial for about two-three weeks. Her partner, Ben, “went white” when he found out.
