Of course there is. If you have unprotected sex it there is always a chance you can get pregnant. After you have a baby, you have no idea when you will start ovulating again. Do NOT use getting your period as a sign that you are fertile again, because you ovulate before you get your period, so that is too late. Make sure, if you decide to have sex before the 6 weeks, you use protection. Use a condom.

I imagine you have a 6 week check up? That would be the time to discuss contraception with your doctor.

You should leave around 2 years before getting pregnant again to allow your body time to heal. Just remember that a c-section is major abdominal surgery, so you have a bit of damage there.
