A new mum fell pregnant with twins six weeks after the birth of her first child because she thought she couldn’t get pregnant while breastfeeding.

Eliza Curby from Sydney, said she was terrified when she found out she was expecting twin boys, conceived just six weeks after the birth of daughter Charlie.

She said she didn’t think about contraception as she believed the old wive’s tale that if you breastfeed, you can’t get pregnant.
Eliza said her partner’s face turned white when she told him they were expecting again.
