You'd think that after having your first, second or even third child you'd have the contraceptive game locked down, right? 

Dr Sneha Wadhwani is a GP who specialises in women's health and wants women to know there are more than just one contraceptive option out there. 

Sneha walks through the options available, the types of contraceptives that are better suited to post-pregnancy, and whether or not contraceptive use can impact the if, when, and how of going on to have more children.

And no, breastfeeding is not a natural contraceptive!

Sneha has spoken to Kinderling Conversation in the past about various women's health topics. You can listen to and read about them by clicking through below.
