If there’s one thing most of us can’t even think about doing in the weeks after birth, it’s getting back into doing the ‘baby dance’. But this mum says she fell pregnant just 14 days after giving birth to her first little one.

Gracie shared a video at 33-weeks-pregnant with her second, saying she’s been pregnant for almost two years straight and she’s ready to give birth to her baby and get her body back. “I got pregnant again two weeks postpartum. My babies will be nine months apart,” she captioned the video.

When she first shared the video, she only had 15 followers on TikTok, but it’s since gone viral and attracted plenty of criticism.

“People have to take the waiting six weeks more seriously,” one person commented.

“Isn’t this dangerous,” asked another commenter.

Gracie addressed the concerns, saying, “Yes it’s most healthy to wait for your body to heal. If I could go back in know what I know now I would have waited. No I don’t think it’s a flex.”

Gracie has since gone on to have a healthy baby boy, called Avondre, a little brother for Adonis. She says she didn’t need any stitches and it was an amazing labour.

She’s also shed some light on what it’s like having two children under 10 months old, saying it’s harder than she thought.

How long should you wait after giving birth before getting pregnant again?

Ideally, it’s advised to wait at least 12 months between pregnancies, and six weeks after birth before having sex.

For many mums, their period doesn’t return for a few months after birth, but don’t let that fool you – you can still fall pregnant! And there’s also a misconception that you can’t fall pregnant while breastfeeding – wrong!

If you’re looking at having babies closer together in age, it’s best to talk to your own doctor or midwife, as they’ll be able to advise what’s best for your body.

  • I couldn’t imagine going there after 2 weeks. Good luck to you.

  • I would have thought it would be hard on the body to be virtually continually pregnant for 18 months.
    I wish them well and hope all is good.

  • Not for me personally but to each their own.

  • People are so quick to judge! I hope she has a super supportive family and friends! Hopefully they will grow up being super close and having an amazing bond :)

  • I hope she gets lots of support – having two very young babies at once.

  • This would be hard on the body, but then again she is very young.

  • So close, she really didn’t get to enjoy the first baby before falling pregnant with another.

  • I don’t think I could handle this! My hubby couldn’t even get close to me until at least 6 weeks after each of our babies were born.
    I wish this lady all the best with her boys and hope things go well for her. The boys will probably grow up more like twins!

  • Wow! I can’t even imagine this. I was so unwell post-partum that sex was not an option for a long time. And when I think back to the first 2 weeks, OMG, it was not even a consideration. My stitches were infected, I had post-partum emergency surgery… this poor love. I cannot even imagine…

  • I hope she is coping well with the little angels. Some teenage Mums really do wonderfully and are awesome parents.

  • Each to their own – if they can handle this, let them be as they have made the choice.
